[07:49] <jcoxon> you'll want to pause it (link in the header)
[07:51] <jcoxon> could it be that it thinks there isn't a gps lock?

[07:53] <DL7AD> jcoxon: thanks :) we do too here
[07:53] <jcoxon> do you have a webpage for the payload?
[07:53] <DL7AD> its everything so perfect right now
[07:54] <DL7AD> jcoxon: thomas will write a blogpost later
[07:54] <DL7AD> http://kt5tk.wordpress.com/
[07:55] <jcoxon> how much does it weigh?
[07:56] <jcoxon> oh <6g
[07:56] <jcoxon> how many balloons?
[07:56] <SpeedEvil> I find it ridiculous that you can get quadcopters in under 8 grams.
[07:57] <DL7AD> jcoxon: 3 balloons stacked with tape
[07:57] <DL7AD> the payload has a weight of 30g
[07:57] <DL7AD> 3 qualatex balloons
[07:57] <DL7AD> free lift 8.5g
[07:58] <jcoxon> DL7AD, we need to get you some of the UBSEDS balloons
[07:58] <jcoxon> then you could just use 1 balloon,
[07:59] <jcoxon> DL7AD, its a really smart payload - good luck!

[08:00] <jcoxon> DL7AD, oh i know - its very cool
[08:00] <DL7AD> we almost worked half a year on that tracker :P
[08:01] <jcoxon> hehe
[08:01] <DL7AD> we use a STM32F4 BGA version with 200pins
[08:01] <jcoxon> something a bit strange on the ssdv pic
[08:01] <jcoxon> i think its looping
[08:01] <ntx2> Thank you
[08:01] <ntx2> it was not plotting since there was no GPS lock
[08:01] <DL7AD> jcoxon: yeah i see that
[08:01] <ntx2> a question
[08:01] <jcoxon> 200 pins - eek
[08:01] <ntx2> how to get the live prediction for the balloon on the habhub map?
[08:02] <jcoxon> ntx2, it just happens when it flys, nothing that needs to be turned on
[08:02] <jcoxon> it needs to collect data first from the beginning of the flight
[08:03] <ntx2> ok...thanks
[08:03] <jcoxon> up till then its best to use the proper predictor
[08:04] <jcoxon> DL7AD, did you see that we did some range testing with ukhasnet and managed 18.75km on the ground
[08:04] <jcoxon> with 2 way comms
[08:04] <ntx2> so when it detects the change in altitude..it starts the prediction
[08:04] <ntx2> ?
[08:04] <DL7AD> jcoxon: wow :) thats cool
[08:04] <DL7AD> jcoxon: do you still use the RFM modules?
[08:04] <jcoxon> i do, other people have got it working on other chips

[08:18] <jcoxon> makes sense

[08:49] <DL7AD> i wrote some documentation
[08:50] <fsphil> the built-in scaling on that camera is a bit poor, I don't think it's doing any low pass filtering

[08:51] <DL7AD> we stop the transmission as we take the pic

[11:24] <fsphil> it does sound like you might have a bad antenna, or faulty connection. especially if everyone else is also having trouble seeing the signal

[11:25] <ntx2> I can see parts of the pacckets
[11:25] <ntx2> I can see parts of the signal I mean
[11:26] <PE2BZ> ntx2 fsphil means the TX antenna from your payload. If no one else receives it perhaps there is no good connection between TX and the TX antenna.
[11:27] <fsphil> I did this once too. your description of it fading after lauch sounds familiar :/
[11:27] <fsphil> launch*
[11:28] <ntx2> I am getting the signal since I can hear it and can see parts of my call sign like FRI-- etc
[11:28] <fsphil> are your two lines in fldigi matching with the payload signal lines?

[11:29] <ntx2> so it is at 11 km
[11:29] <PE2BZ> ntx2 can you confirm my question about how shure you are that your reception frequency is actually the transmitter frequency ? If your RX is offset from the frequency we never gonna find the signal.
[11:30] <PE2BZ> ntx2 112914 would be the UTC time I guess >
[11:31] <ntx2> I think so too
[11:31] <PE2BZ> 273 means frame 273. One frame each ... second , that way you can calculate the flight duration, multiplied by the upgoing speed could give you a prediction of the hight
[11:31] <ntx2> the frequency is at the TX frequency
[11:34] <PE2BZ> is it one frame eacht minute >

[12:10] <ntx2> ok
[12:10] <ntx2> I am wondering when the payload will start sending correct coordinates
[12:10] <DL7AD> ntx2: and it continoues transmission as it falls below the specific alt
[12:10] <ntx2> I am hoping that it will automatically get a gps lock when it comes below the height limit
[12:11] <DL7AD> well it transmits all the time
[12:11] <DL7AD> its just like gps loss messages
[12:11] <ntx2> even the altitude will be wrong when it is over the limit
[12:12] <ntx2> ?
[12:13] <daveake> I think it will just send the last lat/long/alt until it falls below 12km on the way down
[12:13] <ntx2> the limit is 18 km, right?

[12:32] <PE2G> .502
[12:33] <ntx2> i still see it
[12:33] <G8FJG> its only a few db over noise here, right in the 434.500 qrm
[12:34] <ntx2> I am getting my signals at 434.387390

[12:35] <ntx2> that is what I got
[12:35] <PE2G> ntx2: Is it continuous RTTY?
[12:35] <ntx2> partial decode
[12:35] <ntx2> yes
[12:35] <PE2G> Ok
[12:36] <ntx2> there is a delay of about a second
[12:36] <pb0ahx> PE2G, qtf ??

[12:40] <ntx2> PE2G: do you see my payload at all?
[12:40] <daveake> ntx2 does the start of the sentence $$FRINU.. usually get through, and is the rest usually garbled?
[12:41] <ntx2> yes
[12:41] <ntx2> not usually

[12:41] Jerry (5faa14ae@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 250 seconds
[12:41] <daveake> Then I suggest that your tracker's baud rate is slightly wrong
[12:41] <ntx2> I got 2 good packets about 30 min ago
[12:42] <ntx2> how to fix it?
[12:43] <PE2G> ntx2: I can't find any traces around .388, but I've had RTTY-like traces on .502 . No decodes
[12:43] <daveake> you can't
[12:43] <fsphil> make some audio recordings before it lands. it might help you find it later
[12:43] <daveake> yes
[12:47] <G8FJG> cant see any sigs now but they were on 434.500cw and 2 rtty sigs one 434,498 the other 434,502 couldnt decode
[12:47] <PE2BZ> ntx2 Can you tune to a confirmed frequency on your RX to make shure for the other listeners that you are indeed spot on frequency with your RX? It´s strange that only you receive the signal...
[12:49] <ntx2> I am giving you the frequency shown on gqrx
[12:49] <PE2BZ> is it gqrx with rtl dongle ?
[12:51] <PE2G> PE2BZ: Could you take a look at 434.371 pls?
[12:51] <ntx2> http://imgur.com/ROsuvM6
[12:52] <ntx2> it is gqrx with rtl through a filter
[12:52] <fsphil> yeah, that's seriously weak
[12:52] <ntx2> habamp filter
[12:52] <fsphil> can you try without the filter
[12:52] <fsphil> to see if it makes any difference
[12:52] <PE2BZ> ntx2 did you set the ppm correction for the rtl to be spot on frequency ?
[12:52] <ntx2> What happens if I remove the filter?
[12:52] <fsphil> you don't get filtering :)
[12:53] <ntx2> PE2BZ - I did not get that
[12:53] <fsphil> connect the antenna straight to the receiver
[12:53] <PE2BZ> pe2g I have a solid carrier on that frequency
[12:53] <fsphil> just to rule out a problem with that
[12:53] <fsphil> how are you powering the filter?
[12:54] <ntx2> 5V from SDR USB
[12:54] <fsphil> should be fine, but worth testing
[12:54] <fsphil> I suspect you have a fault on the payload
[12:56] <ntx2> what kind of fault?
[12:56] <PE2BZ> ntx2 : I am still unshure why you would receive your signal at 434.388 when it´s set at 434.500 MHz. I assume that your RTL has an offset in PPM, which is common but could be 100 kHz, so if you did not set your PPM then the frequency in GQRX is not ¨certainly right¨ I would like you to tune the reveicer to a known frequency (432 MHz Beacon in CW ? ) in the range of your habamp. That way you can see if you are on frequency.
[12:57] <ntx2> I did not set the TX at 434.5
[12:57] <ntx2> I had set it to 434.38
[12:57] <daveake> re habamp some have a switch for bias-t or external power ... if that's wrong then it won't work
[12:57] <fsphil> ^ this is why you should test without
[12:58] <fsphil> but given nobody else can hear the payload, it's unlikely to be that
[12:58] <fsphil> your antenna on the payload is either faulty or disconnected
[12:58] <PE2BZ> ntx2 the payload info gives 434.500 so that was my assumption for the TX frequency.
[12:58] <daveake> and re "what kind of fault", probably the same one that happened a couple of days ago when you had issues after you connected your aerial
[12:58] <PE2BZ> ntx2 is the habamp with 433 filter, and not 403 MHz filter ?
[13:00] <ntx2> habamp is 434 MHz
[13:05] <ntx2> i also lost signal

[13:19] <PE2BZ> thanks F5MVO . There seems to be a problem with the GPS setting so positions are assumed wrong until it returns below 12 km, if you receive it.

[14:36] <fsphil> the is probably the best use of aprs ever
[14:37] <fsphil> oh dups again
[14:37] <Ian_> What reason for the central lightening of each picture?
[14:38] <DL7AD> Ian_: i dont understand that
[14:38] <Ian_> The central portion of most of the pictures looks lighter. Almost like a security camera with IR illumination
[14:39] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> Colour abberation thru a horrible lens possibly ?
[14:39] <fsphil> vignetting
[14:39] <fsphil> (had to google the spelling)
[14:39] <DL7AD> the lens was accidently soldered.
[14:39] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> seems to be colour based as well
[14:39] <DL7AD> but i dont think thats the reason
[14:39] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> sodered lens ?
[14:39] <fsphil> oh hey, the airport
[14:39] <Ian_> OK - I could spell it but have to recheck the meaning. Optical soldering, another first . . . :)
[14:39] <DL7AD> the be honest, no idea
[14:39] <DL7AD> fsphil: no
[14:40] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> f you did get solder on the lens then it will be a damaged coating
[14:40] <Ian_> Vignetting fits the bill admirably.
[14:41] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> its not simple vigentting its has the colr factor as well
[14:41] <Ian_> The same reason that I often look over my glasses when reading, the drop in light isn't much but perceptible
[14:41] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> colour
[14:42] <fsphil> these camera (ov9655) have quite poor white balance, always seems to produce an image with a bit too much green
[14:43] <fsphil> nice, I can identify parts of this latest image from google maps
[14:44] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> but a simple colour balance problem is across the picture this seems to be associated with the abberation
[14:44] <fsphil> north is to the right of the image
[14:45] <fsphil> you can see the river too
[14:51] <DL7AD> thats a great picture
[14:52] <fsphil> ok found a bug causing the duplicate images. fixed now

[14:55] <DL7AD> thanks Geoff-G8DHE
[14:55] <DL7AD> i'm quiet exited :D
[14:56] <fsphil> no, my fault. there is a lot to prevent two packets being processed at the same time, but it had a bug where that was being ignored
[14:56] <fsphil> lot/lock
[14:56] <fsphil> only affected the new api
[14:56] <fsphil> you're the first to use it on an actual flight :)
[14:59] <KT5TK> Certainly not the last ...
[15:00] <fsphil> I need to re-write it soon to handle faster uploads
[15:01] <fsphil> should an ax.25 version of this have it's own payload name in the header
[15:01] <fsphil> or should it just use the ax.25 callsign
[15:01] <KT5TK> I'm pushing for 9k6 APRS :)
[15:02] <DL7AD> fsphil: its own callsign
[15:02] <DL7AD> fsphil: because someone want to use an non amateur radio callsign on 70cm and a real callsign on APRS
[15:03] <DL7AD> but DL7AD-12 and D-9 cant be combined by Habhub

[16:54] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> The top line is on all images from number 9
[16:55] <fsphil> it seems to read 20 lines, stops, then starts again on the next frame
[16:59] <Ian_> It's not every day that you get inflight diagnostics/diagnosis like these. What is the knee voltage for the SSDV cutoff?
[16:59] <fsphil> maybe not. tested a few and although the brightness changes the orientation never does. it might all be from the same frame
[16:59] <fsphil> memory issue maybe
[17:02] <DL7AD> i sample the image raw into the memory completely in 1/80sec
[17:02] <DL7AD> then i switch off the DMA and DCMI
[17:03] <SM0ULC-Reb> DL7AD: cool with the great pic of the airport
[17:03] <DL7AD> Ian_: sddvSwitchedOn = batteryMV > 3700 && solarMV > 1000
[17:03] <DL7AD> if voltage is below, check again in 1min
[17:04] <DL7AD> but it will finish the image
[17:04] <DL7AD> so it might transmit packets from the last image at night
[17:04] <DL7AD> and in the morning it starts again as the battery voltage gets above 3.7V
[17:05] <Ian_> Thanks for that.
[17:05] <DL7AD> aprs and UKHAS telemetry continues transmission above 3.0V
[17:06] <Copyright> :>
[17:08] <fsphil> ok this is a great image
[17:08] <DL7AD> fsphil: i think that too
[17:09] <DL7AD> i adjust the PLLN tough due to the HSI frequency shift
[17:09] <daveake> Nice timing for that airport one earlier
[17:09] <DL7AD> fsphil: so the SYSCLK stays at 45Mhz while the camera gets 14-16mhz
[17:10] <DL7AD> i think thats the error
[17:10] <DL7AD> daveake: yeah. but that has been great luck
[17:11] <daveake> not planned? :p
[17:12] <DL7AD> daveake: nope
[17:12] <DL7AD> the footprint of the camera is 5x5km roughly
[17:13] <Ian_> Welcome to Italy
[17:13] <DL7AD> but at this speed it took one image every 20...30km
[17:16] <SM0ULC-Reb> DL7AD: for how long do you expect it to be up?
[17:18] <DL7AD> SM0ULC-Reb: on the groud it took 60% of the battery life over 10hours with GPS loss (gps switched on the whole time)
[17:18] <DL7AD> its a 2.07Wh battery
[17:19] <DL7AD> but dont take the power measurements in account. they are false by factor 4...5
[17:19] <DL7AD> to divide the transmitted power (in mW) by 4 and you get roughly the consumed power

[17:21] <DL7AD> they can
[17:22] <DL7AD> but the last image for today
[17:22] <SM0ULC-Reb> aah
[17:22] <DL7AD> it switches off SSDV at night

[18:52] <craag> jakeio: So basically you want your antenna to connect to the RF OUT pin
[18:53] <F5MVO> Hello,someone have info from Frinus balloon ?
[18:53] <craag> With the antenna constructed something like: https://ukhas.org.uk/guides:payload_antenna
[18:53] <craag> where the inner core of the coax cable connects to RF OUT
[18:53] <craag> and the outer 'shield' to Ground (0V)
[18:54] <jakeio> Yes, I've read that guide, so, there'd be no need for a SMA connector in this case. Purely soldering it on?
[18:54] <craag> How are you planning to build your circuit? On stripboard or PCB?
[18:55] <jakeio> Probably on stripboard.
[18:55] Halfdead (~Halfdead@71-84-11-44.dhcp.trlk.ca.charter.com) joined #highaltitude.
[18:55] <craag> Either way it'd be good to have an SMA socket on the board, so you can disconnect the antenna
[18:55] <craag> and connect it securely for flight
[18:57] <jakeio> Ah, OK, well, thanks. That clears that up! I'll certainly be returning here quite a bit in the next few weeks as I get going!
[18:58] <daveake> Do. Also, let us know when your flight is so we can help with tracking.
[18:58] <jakeio> I intend to do so! I've just seen that the Ublox antenna I'm getting and the NTX2B are out of stock on uputronics, if I order now, I assume they'll ship as soon as they're in stock? If not, what is their stock like? Usually full or very intermittent?

[19:38] <edmoore> it used ptt to automatically do uplinks to the parachute test vehicle through the ic-7000
[19:38] <adamgreig> did it PTT the ICOM though the acc/data port or did it use the serial control?

[19:56] <edmoore> you could fly a DIY board too if you fancied A Project
[20:00] <JonnyAlpha> Edmoore: Might be too technical, although I can solder. PITs and Pi is about £140, how much for a DIY board using a UBlox GPS and Radiometrix Radio Tx?
[20:01] <edmoore> less
[20:01] <edmoore> unless you include time of course
[20:01] <edmoore> so nowadays you can get 5x sorta 10x10cm boards made in china for about £10
[20:01] <edmoore> it's amazing really
[20:01] <edmoore> typically you might also put an 8-bit microcontroller on it too to do the inbetweening twixt the gps and radio
[20:02] <edmoore> the advantage of that is that a modern 8bit microcontroller only needs to use about 2mW do such a thing
[20:02] <edmoore> rather than more like 1-2W for a raspberry pi
[20:02] <edmoore> so for example ubseds has just floated around the world with a single AA battery

[20:02] <edmoore> that's like a week+ of life from one cell
[20:03] <JonnyAlpha> I'd need a step by step (Instructables Guide) prob, daveake has a link to a schematic but at a glance its above my ability?
[20:03] <JonnyAlpha> Although the satisfaction of a DIY rig would be great.
[20:04] <JonnyAlpha> I take it ubseds was not recovered :-) so data via SSDV? Or is it still up there?

[20:06] <edmoore> a complete guide to microcontrollers (in the context of a flight computer) from scratch would be a good thing i think
[20:06] <edmoore> not so much spoon-feeding making a flight computer but teaching microcontrollers generally so you can make anything, including a flight computer
[20:07] <JonnyAlpha> So is there a good guide anywhere?
[20:08] <JonnyAlpha> Ref the UBEDS, funny that I was looking at this link the other day, it was there project proposal: http://www.bristol-seds.co.uk/assets/posts/receiver/UBSEDS_HAB_Receiver_Proposal.pdf
[20:08] <edmoore> JonnyAlpha: no
[20:08] <edmoore> it's more 'make microcontroller blink an led.... make microcontroller produce rtty..... make microcontroller talk to gps'
[20:08] <edmoore> it's basically learning
[20:08] <edmoore> rather than a howto
[20:09] <edmoore> there is obviously overlap between those two but currently it's towards one end of the spectrum
[20:09] <edmoore> but equally this irc channel is exactly the place if you want to do that
[20:09] <edmoore> messing with microcontrollers from first pricniples
[20:10] <JonnyAlpha> Ok I have been playing with a LinkITOne that I won and within a few minutes have the GPS up and running view coord via Serial, was thinking of using it as a recovery backup
[20:13] <edmoore> sounds like a good plan - a backup is only a good thing

[20:23] <JonnyAlpha> For SDR has anyone tried these: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/NooElec/USB-Devices-/_i.html?rt=nc&_fsub=3255595012&_sid=32165772&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1513&_pgn=1
[20:24] <edmoore> the ezcap ones are popular but quite deaf
[20:24] <edmoore> they have low sensitivity and poor filtering, but are still good for the money
[20:24] <edmoore> so they are often used in combination with a filter pre-amp
[20:25] <edmoore> which amplifies the frequencies of ineterest (434mhz) and blocks out everything else
[20:25] <edmoore> look for hab-amp on uputronics
[20:25] <JonnyAlpha> Or these: https://www.cosycave.co.uk/product.php?id_product=346
[20:26] <manterolat> We used a NooElec rtl-sdr for our last launch. With an NTX2 we could receive at 18 km altitude (with yagi antenna)
[20:27] <JonnyAlpha> manterolat: I was hoping for 30Km?
[20:27] <manterolat> Our balloon burst below expected...
[20:27] <JonnyAlpha> The ezcap are out of stock on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/adapter-RTL2832U-Software-GNURadio-Compatible/dp/B00813EW48
[20:27] <manterolat> But with a proper antenna it should go to 30 km
[20:27] <JonnyAlpha> Ooops :-(
[20:28] <manterolat> Yeah, too much helium
[20:28] <manterolat> Gonna try a LoRa module for this launch (and correct amount of helium :P)
[20:29] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> Provided it stays line of sight then the extra distance doesn't actually make that much difference
[20:29] <JonnyAlpha> Could do some Line of Sight (LOS) tests high up on a hill and see how I get on, just don't want to waste money buy crud that won't work hence the advice :-)
[20:30] <edmoore> ezcap+habamp is routinely good for hundreds of km
[20:30] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> The Dongles will work fine, its just that they are not the most rugged of devices for portble reception, you have lots of leads etc. to contend with
[20:30] <JonnyAlpha> Sorry that was an unthought through post 30KM is a long way!!
[20:31] <edmoore> not for hab
[20:32] <manterolat> edmoore: would it be possible to use a habamp with a LoRa module?
[20:32] <edmoore> for 434mhz yes
[20:33] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> Unless you want to transmit of course ;-)
[20:33] <edmoore> just make sure it's the right freq/bandwidth and you can use it with anything
[20:33] <manterolat> Ah ok
[20:33] <manterolat> Thanks
[20:33] <manterolat> I was about to ask about TX
[20:33] <edmoore> some lora is on 868mhz for which you'd need to have a differently tuned filter (for 868mhz)
[20:33] <edmoore> yeah tx is a different kettle
[20:34] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> The pre-amp won;t do much for the Tx signalother than stop it getting to the aerial!
[20:34] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> But the LoRa Rx side isn't that bad a spec anyway.
[20:35] <manterolat> Nice
[20:36] <manterolat> Yeah, we have a few of the 70 cm rfm96
[20:36] <JonnyAlpha> Sorry - mixed responses, USB DVB dongles for HAB yes or no?
[20:37] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> Yes quite usuable
[20:37] <manterolat> I've used them only once, but they worked pretty well
[20:38] <adamgreig> they suffer from various problems that will make hab tracking harder or less reliable
[20:38] <adamgreig> but are in general usable
[20:38] <JonnyAlpha> Geoff: Thanks, just trying to source some tried and tested ones, I know they are only £10 or so but I'd rather not waste anything.
[20:38] <adamgreig> for not much more money you can buy a preamp for the HAB frequencies that helps a fair bit
[20:39] <adamgreig> https://store.uputronics.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=59&product_id=53 specificaly
[20:39] <adamgreig> cosycave's rtlsdrs are fine and good if you're the one who recently emailed about them
[20:39] <jakeio> Upu - are you around?
[20:39] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> To mke them more robust its a good idea to package an Dongle & pre-amp in a metal case to minimise cables etc.
[20:40] <JonnyAlpha> adamgreig: Do the cozycaves need or benefit from a preamp?

[20:43] <jakeio> Upu: the "uBLOX MAX-M8Q SAW/LNA Breakout With Sarantel Antenna" is still showing as not in stock when it's in stock! Sorry to post again, realised, I'd forgotten the colons!
[20:43] <JonnyAlpha> So any RTLSDR and a preamp?
[20:43] <edmoore> pretty much yes
[20:44] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> But think about packaging them together
[20:44] <edmoore> 'any' is a strong word but if you can find any of the ones you see discussed here and on blogs you should be in business
[20:44] <manterolat> If you do get an rtl-sdr, one with an SMA connector could be easier to connect to the habamp
[20:44] <manterolat> You would need an adapter otherwise
[20:44] <JonnyAlpha> Sorry yes, I'll stick to the ones I have linked, so about £10 for the dongle and £35 for the preamp - cool.
[20:45] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> Unlikely to find one with SMA to be honest you would need to add that yurself
[20:45] <manterolat> Good idea
[20:46] <edmoore> easy enough if you can wield a soldering iron

[20:49] <AdiOltean> Call sign = KG7WFR
[20:49] <Geoff-G8DHE-lapt> Do you mean Habitat or the tracker, if its APRS then it just needs to have the callsignset for import.
[20:50] <JonnyAlpha> The ones from Cozycave and Nooelec have MCX connectors, cozycave do the MMX to SMA adaptors.
[20:50] <AdiOltean> it is APRs enabled

[22:19] <manterolat> Good thing there's an aprs station so close to the park :P

[22:24] <amell> Gah. I hadnt realised the Lora board needed a later Pi.
[22:24] <amell> Seems the pi 2 has a different header
[22:24] <manterolat> They should be compatible
[22:25] <craag> The b+/2/3 have a new header
[22:25] <manterolat> Ah
[22:25] <craag> old a/b won't work
[22:25] <manterolat> Sorry
[22:26] <amell> so i have to buy a new pi :( :(
[22:26] <amell> how annoying
[22:26] <amell> does the 3 work here?
[22:26] <mfa298> Pi3 has built in wifi so makes life easier to connect to the internets
[22:26] <craag> a+/b+/2/3 will all work
[22:27] <amell> is 3 actually known to work/tested?
[22:27] <craag> Yes
[22:28] <craag> and it's not very different anyway
[22:29] <amell> wtf would i buy a pi3 from hong kong? ebay is full of asian chancers
[22:29] <mfa298> rs/cpc ftw buying Pi's
[22:30] <amell> yeah, seen any good cases, ideally with lcd on it?
[22:32] <mfa298> rs seem to have a reasonable case that should also let you put a hat in. Not sure about options for LCD
[22:33] <daveake> Might be fun trying to find a case that will house a Pi, LoRa HAT and LCD/HAT on top
[22:35] <daveake> This is what I did - http://www.daveakerman.com/?p=1905
[22:35] <amell> daveake: looks like a starfleet standard issue medical kit as per mccoy :)
[22:38] <mfa298> this is the case I found at RS. Top is removeable giving access to gpio and other connectors, but still covers most of the rest of the pcb https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/development-board-enclosures/9084218
[22:40] <amell> 26.75 for pi3 from RS free next day. cant really beat that...
[22:41] <manterolat> lburton: Only ~1 hour left to landing site!
[22:41] <mfa298> they then add VAT onto that, but I think still on the cheaper side
[22:43] <mfa298> if you get a Pi3 you amy want the PSU to go with it, it's a bit more power hungry than the earlier ones (wasn't happy on my 1A PSU)
[22:43] <amell> ok. now looking for a GPS addon to PI3 that will do raw GPS for rtklib
[22:43] <daveake> yeah they can use 800mA or so without wlan, BT, USB
[22:50] <daveake> Dunno what you mean by "raw GPS", but you should be able to use any USB GPS receiver, or Upu's Pi UBlox board.

[22:54] <amell> daveake: a GPS that does RTK
[22:55] <adamgreig> well like there are ublox modules that do rtk, but they don't work with rtklib
[22:57] <amell> hmm, looks like LEA-4T, 5T 6T do
