[07:06] <WB8ELK> For those in Sweden....in addition to the 144.800 MHz APRS frequency, it also transmits on 144.340 MHz FM APRS about 10 seconds after the primary APRS transmission.
[07:09] <lz1dev> WB8ELK: you should resend the telemetry configurations, so that we get telemetry on the tracker
[07:10] <WB8ELK> I was wondering why the telemetry wasn't showing up. I'll try that.
[07:11] <SA6BSS-Mike> I soon going to work, but I set up a sdr receiver and remote in during day and listen in
[07:14] <WB8ELK> Hi Mike...it sppears that it will be in range of your location in about three hours...heading towards you. 144.340 MHz FM APRS
[07:14] <WB8ELK> and also 144.800 MHz APRS
[07:15] <WB8ELK> OK...I resent the telemetry parameters to APRS.FI...did that make a difference in HabHub telemetry?
[07:17] <WB8ELK> Not sure how to send the telemetry configurations to Habhub however?

[07:20] <WB8ELK> Ch1 is 3.60 volts Solar panel....Ch2 is 3.52 volts LiPo battery...Ch3 is -9 deg C (have a small bug in my telemetry code there)...Ch4 is number of satellites...Ch5 is GPS Lock status
[07:21] <lz1dev> yeah it's not picking them up for some reason
[07:22] <WB8ELK> Do I have to send the telemetry parameters directly to HabHub somehow...or does it pick it up from APRS.FI?
[07:22] <lz1dev> no, you send the via aprs
[07:22] <lz1dev> the=them
[07:23] <WB8ELK> I just resent the parameters to APRS.FI so maybe it takes a few minutes to be picked up by Habhub?
[07:24] <WB8ELK> The telemetry charts work on APRS.FI....I have the fields encoded in BASE 91 notation like they suggest...not sure why Spacnear not picking it up...I noticed that earlier and was wondering why
[07:25] <lz1dev> nope, the EQNS part was not picked up
[07:25] <lz1dev> wierd

[10:47] <adamgreig> great thankyou
[10:47] <adamgreig> very cold
[10:47] <AndyEsser> Go anywhere exciting? (I think I asked before but can't remember the answer)
[10:47] <adamgreig> amusing to be unable to brush teeth because my water bottle had frozen solid and my toothpaste had frozen solid and my hands were frozen solid
[10:47] <AndyEsser> hahaha
[10:47] <adamgreig> i was in ladakh, which is northern india, in the himalayas
[10:47] <AndyEsser> O cool
[10:48] <AndyEsser> Not launch any HABs whilst you were there?
[10:49] <adamgreig> I was in the "hemis high altitude national park"
[10:49] <adamgreig> but it was not a great spot for HABs
[10:50] <adamgreig> on account of being incredibly mountainous terrain
[10:50] <adamgreig> and also the cold
[10:50] <AndyEsser> Indeed
[10:50] <adamgreig> tying knots in ~0C for a UK winter launch is bad enough
[10:50] <adamgreig> -18C would have been.. worse
[10:50] <adamgreig> did you launch anything yet?

[11:22] <daey> all he sees are red ads, blue ads, pink ads
[11:23] <AndyEsser> :P
[11:23] <nick_> And similarly there are mappings for <hX>, <a> <img>, that are just more human friendly.
[11:24] <fsphil> humans should be more machine friendly
[11:24] <AndyEsser> ^^
[11:24] Action: nick_ points out he's fluent in the IPbus protocol.
[11:25] <nick_> Actually, I'm kinda rusty now, as I worked out trying to write a packet off the top of my head.
[11:28] <nick_> But I spent a few days about a year ago reading raw UDP packets to debug an issue with a detector using the IPbus protocol (which allows you to remotely read and write registers in an FPGA over a network)
[11:29] <AndyEsser> dude... wireshark
[11:30] <nick_> Yeah, but wireshark doesn't know what's in the bytes the UDP packet is transporting.
[11:32] <zyp> unless it knows the protocol and got a dissector for it
[11:36] <nick_> (Un?)forutnately only a small number of particle physicists use the protocol.
[11:36] <AndyEsser> yes, but then you can just grab the payload rather than the whole packet and then understand the IPbus bit :)

[14:38] <bfw> i yearn to fill a balloon with water, wait until it turns in to amonia and then throw it at you.
[14:38] <bfw> is this acceptable
[14:38] <bfw> please wear goggles
[14:40] <berryIMC> I use BMP180 pressure sensor in my payload. I am trying to understand the power requirements for this sensor...in the spec sheet is says 5uA (microAmps) when
[14:40] <berryIMC> it is taking 1 sample per second
[14:40] <berryIMC> so if my code does not read the sensor every minute but reads it every 2 mins, will the power draw halve?
[14:41] <berryIMC> basically can I reduce the power draw by not reading the sensor too often?
[14:41] <bfw> you need more pressure.
[14:41] <adamgreig> probably it uses a little power always, quiescent, which won't be affected
[14:41] <bfw> ?
[14:41] <adamgreig> and some greater amount of power when reading, which will be reduced by reading less often
[14:41] <berryIMC> I know it is a very low power sensor...
[14:41] <bfw> are you building a time machine?
[14:41] <adamgreig> but at 5uA you either already know that, or it's so small you might as well ignore it compared to everything else
[14:42] <berryIMC> I know

[14:48] <edmoore> yes

[15:04] <berryIMC> edmoore - how was the power draw of the IMUs you used?
[15:05] <edmoore> you're correct everywhere berryIMC
[15:05] <edmoore> the power draw is pretty low from the sort of basic ones designed for mobile phones
[15:05] <edmoore> like 1mA maybe
[15:08] <berryIMC> ok.....
[15:08] <berryIMC> I wanted to crosscheck my understanding of these sensors.......like do I really need gyro data to get good acceleration data?
[15:10] <edmoore> no because gyros dont measure acceleration
[15:10] <edmoore> they measure angular rate
[15:10] <edmoore> the question is really what do you actually want to learn from the sensors
[15:11] <edmoore> attitude vs time?
[15:11] <berryIMC> attitude is already available from a BMP180...
[15:11] <adamgreig> attitude is not the same as altitude...
[15:11] <edmoore> no it isn't
[15:11] <edmoore> bmp180 measures pressure
[15:11] <berryIMC> sorry
[15:11] <edmoore> from which you can infer altitude with an 'l'
[15:11] <berryIMC> you are right..I misunderstood
[15:12] <berryIMC> basically I wanted to understand the forces acting on the payload
[15:12] <edmoore> you might be interested in, say, turbulance vs altitude
[15:12] OH3UW (58568634@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[15:12] <berryIMC> yup
[15:12] <edmoore> in which case just accelerations would be fine i'd have thought
[15:12] <berryIMC> turbulance will be great
[15:13] <edmoore> whereas attitude (are you are oriented in 3d space) would probably need accel+gyro and some moderately clever algorithm to combine the data from those sensors to turn them into euler-angle (or whatever)
[15:13] <berryIMC> attitude is not important at this point in time...
[15:13] <edmoore> the latter is quite a lot more complicated than the former. Turbulance would be an interestiung thing to measure and accel-only i'd have thought
[15:13] <edmoore> if within your power budget you have the option to collect and save both, why not?
[15:13] <edmoore> you could revisit the dataset later
[15:14] <edmoore> having collected it anyway just incase
[15:15] <berryIMC> I was checking with the berryIMU folks who told me that their sensor consumes 350uA when gyro powered down but when gyro is on, it consumes 6.1mA
[15:15] <berryIMC> so gyro seems to be very power hungry
[15:15] <berryIMC> anyway back to my confusion
[15:16] <edmoore> ah right
[15:16] <edmoore> fair
[15:16] <edmoore> well, your call really
[15:16] <edmoore> adamgreig: what's the combined thirst of the 9050 thingamie (i forget the exact designation) that you thought was good?
[15:16] <berryIMC> is an IMU such that I can poll it periodically and get the acceleration in the different directions? or do I have to keep track of the values and use some filter to remove the noise...?
[15:17] <berryIMC> thats what the online documentation seems to suggest - that acceleration data is very noisy and that it needs a filter....
[15:17] <edmoore> berryIMC: first part) that's a 3-axis accelerometer. Yes you just poll it to get an instantaneous acceleration value
[15:17] <adamgreig> it's insanely low
[15:18] <adamgreig> oh hmm not that insane actually
[15:18] <edmoore> second part) yes, there is an awful lot of science you can do to get rid of noise and biases from inertial sensors to give an good overal estimate of your state
[15:18] <adamgreig> anyway 3.7mA for 9 axis at 4kHz gyro, 4kHz accel, 8Hz magno
[15:18] <edmoore> position/velocity/acceleration/attitude etc
[15:18] <adamgreig> down to 8.4uA for just accel at 1hz
[15:18] <edmoore> the most popular thing since the 60s has been a filter called the Kalman Filter
[15:19] <edmoore> it's been used on almost everything that flies from apollo onwards and is (in more modern forms) a key building block in a lot of signal processing and robotics and other applications
[15:20] <berryIMC> I was reading about Kalman filter and that it is processor intensive....
[15:20] <edmoore> in an extremely hand-wavy way, what it does is has a sort of 'mental model' of your system - how quickly it can accelerate and so on - and a finite amount of trust in what the sensors tell it
[15:20] <berryIMC> wondering if I should get my pi to do all this processing while in flight
[15:20] <edmoore> and it basically 'sanity checks' the sensor readings against the mental model and apportions and amount of trust to the mentla model and an amount of trust to the sensor readings and produces a new estimate of your state weighted by those trusts
[15:20] <edmoore> simple kalman filters are not cpu intensive really
[15:21] <berryIMC> adamgreig - are you saying that 3.1mA is not high?
[15:21] <Laurenceb_> wait... you have a pi on there and are worrying about 3mA ??
[15:21] <adamgreig> it's all relative
[15:21] <adamgreig> your pi will be using hundreds of mA at least
[15:21] <adamgreig> so compared to that 3mA is basically lost in the noise
[15:21] <edmoore> it's only that they can get quite complicated and are based on matrix maths, and some matrix maths operations like inversiion grow in cpu-intensiveness as the cube of the size of the matrix
[15:21] <adamgreig> but if you were actually doing low power design, 3mA is gigantic, and you'd be waking up only occasionally to sample data, etc
[15:22] <edmoore> so they get spu intensive for complicated ones but for simple small kalman filters they're not much different to anything else
[15:24] <Laurenceb_> I'm running a Kalman with attitude,velocity,position,gyro bias as the state matrix at 120hz on cortex m3 (no fpu), so its no too intensive
[15:30] <berryIMC> Laurenceb_: are you doing this in your HAB payload?
[15:31] <berryIMC> edmoore: so how are you calculating turbulance using acceleration?
[15:31] <Laurenceb_> no this isnt for HAB
[15:31] <edmoore> i don't know, i've never wanted to know
[15:32] <edmoore> i don't think there's an accepted metric for 'turbulance'
[15:32] <edmoore> that you can calculate
[15:32] <edmoore> and get a number saying 'there were 7.4 turbulances'
[15:32] <edmoore> you'd probably have to hit the weather or aviation literature
[15:33] <edmoore> but for making comparative measurements of turbulance at different altitudes an accelerometer would be my first choice i'd have thought
[15:34] <edmoore> maybe a graph of say the standard deviation of accelerations of a sliding 20-second window, vs altitude
[15:34] <berryIMC> would be or wouldn't be?
[15:34] <edmoore> would be
[15:35] <edmoore> so basically you expect the accelerometer to pretty much just see 1G the entire time it's hanging under the balloon right? just gravity
[15:36] <edmoore> but if it's being beaten up by turbulence, you'd expect that to be a very noisy average 1G rather than a very quiet average 1G
[15:37] <R34lB0rg> and you would see ~0g when the balloon pops
[15:37] <edmoore> so my thinking is you make a metric for noisiness (e.g. the standard deviation of some period of time like 20s) and call that 'turbulence
[15:37] <edmoore> this is my fag-packet first-order thought anyway
[15:37] <edmoore> there may be an established way of doing this already
[15:38] <berryIMC> if the payload rotates.there will be acceleration in other axes, right?
[15:39] <edmoore> yep
[15:39] <R34lB0rg> if the sensor is not mounted at the center of mass, you will see acceleration in addition to rotation
[15:39] <edmoore> acceleration towards the centre of rotation
[15:40] <SpeedEvil> There exist many mobile accelleromete chips that support interrupt on fall
[15:40] <R34lB0rg> yeah, but that draws additional current

[16:03] <berryIMC> I was originally planning to measure the velocity
[16:04] <berryIMC> but not sure how to convert the measures of acceleration into velocity since I am not sure if the spot measures of acceleration can be used to calculate the spot velocity
[16:05] <adamgreig> see edmoore's earlier discussion on attitude estimation with kalman filters
[16:06] <adamgreig> you can estimate velocity from acceleration but you have to make various assumptions and you will increase in error over time without some reference measurement
[16:06] <adamgreig> you can use the GPS derived velocity measurements too, to some extent, and incorporate them too
[16:06] <berryIMC> GPS derived = difference in altitude/time?
[16:06] <adamgreig> that's an option
[16:06] <berryIMC> or difference in coords/time?
[16:06] <adamgreig> well both are a velocity
[16:07] <berryIMC> right....in different directions...?
[16:07] <adamgreig> but gps usually outputs actual velocity estimate too, and at a more advanced level can do a good estimate using doppler shifts also
[16:07] <adamgreig> velocity always involves directions
[16:08] <berryIMC> I did not realize GPS calculates velocity
[16:08] <edmoore> it does and very well
[16:08] <berryIMC> rather provides an estimate of
[16:09] <berryIMC> in the GNGGA string that we get, is there a velocity value? or is it calculated ?
[16:09] <berryIMC> I meant the GNGGA string from GPS

[17:54] <Ian_> Other than train cord construction what are the factors that directly influence package and balloon rotation? In the Northern hemisphere package rotation appears to predominantly be to the right - clockwise when viewed from above?

[18:16] <Lunar_Lander> today I tried my first Microwire device

[18:17] <fsphil> oh, SPI but not
[18:17] <Lunar_Lander> yea MOSI/MISO are one line
[18:17] <Lunar_Lander> so half-duplex if I think right
[18:20] <Lunar_Lander> I tried the TC77 thermometer from Microchip
[18:20] <Lunar_Lander> it sometimes worked, sometimes it didn't, I suspect an init problem, will have to look at it again

[20:10] <chris_99> aren't they
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> 6kg all-up weight
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> 2:1 t:w
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> he was initially intending to do thrust vectored at the back but CG was a problem
[20:11] <chris_99> ahh, centre-of-gravity?
[20:11] <SpeedEvil> yes
[20:12] <chris_99> are model jet engines v. hard to make? as they seem very expensive
[20:13] <SpeedEvil> yes
[20:14] <SpeedEvil> you can make brushless motors with very little gear.
[20:14] <SpeedEvil> you need a laser or waterjet cutter to cut laminations, a CNC lathe/mill to cut the cans
[20:15] <hosler> got my SDR running on gentoo finally
[20:15] <SpeedEvil> and then glue the magnets to the outside carefully, and wind the lams
[20:15] <hosler> so if i get it on the APRS network, i should hear more chatter, right?
[20:15] <SpeedEvil> you can't - quite - make it with a flie.
[20:15] <chris_99> hehe
[20:15] <fsphil> depending on where you live, there should be some activity on the aprs frequency
[20:15] <SpeedEvil> Jet engines involve really close tollerance high temperature stuff and flame dynamics and ...
[20:16] <chris_99> so i shouldnt expect any from China for < £300 anytime soon
[20:16] <SpeedEvil> :)
[20:16] <hosler> fsphil: i live in south east USA. everything is relatively quiet here. doesnt APRS extend my range?
[20:17] <fsphil> aprs is just a network. if you're not near any nodes you'll not hear anything
[20:17] <hosler> im near at least one node
[20:17] <fsphil> if it's transmitting you should hear it bleep every once in a while
[20:17] <hosler> yeah i heard it
[20:17] <chris_99> what SDR is it?
[20:18] <hosler> chris_99: this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011HVUEME
[20:18] <chris_99> ah cool, i've got an rtlsdr, i just need a decent antenna now
[20:19] <chris_99> oh that's got a better crystal though
[20:19] <chris_99> than mine
[20:19] <hosler> chris_99: i plugged mine in and i havent heard anything except weather broadcasts
[20:19] <hosler> it was kind of anti climactic
[20:19] <chris_99> you could check POCSAG maybe or the flight stuff
[20:19] <hosler> oh good idea
[20:20] <hosler> forgot about the airplanes
[20:20] <chris_99> i'll find the program i use it's pretty good
[20:20] <hosler> im using gqrx
[20:20] <fsphil> I like gqrx
[20:20] <fsphil> some rough edges but works a treat
[20:20] <hosler> fsphil: do i need to enable something special inside gqrx to hear stuff on APRS?
[20:21] <hosler> or does APRS relay on normal frequencies with nothing fancy
[20:21] <chris_99> oh dump1090
[20:21] <hosler> i still have no idea what im doing
[20:21] <chris_99> is the program
[20:21] <fsphil> no. but if you are hearing packets already there is a decoder (AFSK1200) in one of the menus
[20:21] <fsphil> but the packets probably don't contain much
[20:23] <R34lB0rg> btw there is a helpful ##rtlsdr channel

[21:14] <AndyEsser> can't really complain on the size for 1300mAh
[21:14] <AndyEsser> need to do a freezer test on them though
[21:15] <habby> There are loads on their site. Do you have a part number?
[21:15] <Lunar_Lander> btw is there like a survey on which temperature sensors people used on their flights or is it just mostly DS18B20?

[21:17] <fsphil> but they're APRS so there's a good bet they're on the standard frequency in their area

[21:45] <kc2pit> Lunar_Lander: I've used TMP36 analog sensors and the temperature readout from a BMP180. The DS18B20 seems oddly expensive to me; if you don't need the one-wire capability, consider something like an LM75 at a quarter of the price.
