[12:50] <camchris> On tracker.habhub.org - what do the large green and blue rings around a balloon represent?
[12:50] <fsphil> the blue circle is the balloon's horizon
[12:50] <camchris> I didnt notice anything when the green one went over my house !
[12:51] <fsphil> the green one is where the balloon is 5 degrees above the horizon
[12:51] <edmoore> which is a more practical circle for 'should be able to hear it'
[12:51] <fsphil> indeed. you can hear it if you're inside the blue circle and have a clear horizon in that direction
[12:52] <camchris> Thanks.
[12:52] <fsphil> in theory you could even see it visually, if you had good enough optics and a way to aim it
[12:54] <camchris> The Manchester and Belgium station started receiving as the blue line crossed them.

[13:18] <camchris> I didnt see an antenna on a quick scan of the first link. I was thinking of a verital dipole - half above and half below the payload box.
[13:19] <edmoore> the 1/4 wave with groundplane that Geoff-G8DHE described is probably what is flown on 95% of the flights

[13:19] <camchris> Yep and the number of satellites is varying a lot too - from 3 to 7
[13:20] <Geoff-G8DHE> if they strapped a camera on during launch in place of the hat my guess would be interference from that but ....
[13:20] <Upu> that I believe is due to interference in the payload box

[14:18] <FuzzyLemon> In bletchley now and not picking up any signal
[14:20] <FuzzyLemon> how on earth can we find it?
[14:20] <craag> Go for the predicted landing spot
[14:20] <edmoore> north of bletchly
[14:21] <edmoore> i doubt it has come down yet so keep your eyes peeled
[14:21] <edmoore> overhead heading north
[14:21] <edmoore> have the radio audibly on the entire time as you're driving
[14:21] <edmoore> be aware that your brain will definitely trick you into thinking you can hear faint rtty in white noise
[14:22] <mfa298> I can still hear it here, although it went quite for a while
[14:22] <mfa298> I wonder if that means burst or whether it was just in a bad location
[14:23] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Its still very strong down here on the coast so its still abobe 4-5Kms
[14:24] <Upu> still quite strong from up north so it must be > 5km atm
[14:26] <FuzzyLemon> got a signal but no GPS
[14:26] <PD3JAG> great signal green strings but not in the list ?????
[14:27] <Upu> yeah we've been discussing this seems something is jamming the GPS
[14:27] <Upu> aim for the predicted it is still getting time so it may get lock back
[14:27] <Upu> if not get your yagi out
[14:28] <Upu> and direction find it
[14:28] <Upu> and if that ICOM of yours has an attenuate button that may help
[14:28] <edmoore> if you have a signal you can find it with the yagi
[14:28] <edmoore> just taking bearings from signal strength
[14:28] <edmoore> that'll save you
[14:28] <PD3JAG> strange never problems with it ,,
[14:30] <edmoore> and remember to keep your eyes peeled for visual
[14:30] <PD3JAG> gren strings and not in the list first time i have this and a nother station here to also sme problem
[14:30] <Upu> Still over 5km
[14:30] <edmoore> you have a problem with your spacebar PD3JAG
[14:30] <mattbrejza> has anyone actualyl found a hab based on purely a yagi and carrier before?
[14:31] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Its not plotting anything PD3JAG, as the GPS is invalid.
[14:31] <edmoore> mattbrejza: yes
[14:31] <edmoore> plenty of times
[14:31] <Upu> 7.5m/s @ 25km
[14:31] <Upu> thats a slow one
[14:31] <edmoore> in the days of the coxon kilometer
[14:31] <Upu> if it comes back at 12km then the code needs looking at
[14:31] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> don't rely on that data it was loosing accuracy at burst
[14:31] <mattbrejza> ah not so much recently
[14:31] <Upu> but the status code is indicating its in flight mode
[14:31] <edmoore> no because flight computers tend to be reliable
[14:31] <g8fjg> when pd3jag loses signal , you will at least know its coming down
[14:32] <edmoore> but it was certainly a necessary skill sort of pre 2009
[14:32] <mattbrejza> not sure landing on MK is good terrain for it though

[14:33] <Upu> wonder if the burst shook something
[14:33] <mattbrejza> does it sound burst?
[14:33] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> descending now
[14:34] <camchris> gps vertical tends to be lower precision
[14:34] <camchris> its only got 4 satellites

They assert dominance with other members of their herd, but are submissive and non-threatening towards humans. Their feet are padded, they do not bite, and they are small enough to be safe even around small children."

[15:22] <Geoff-G8DHE> Oh don't destroy a good tale - how the payload was pulled from its mouth
[15:24] <Upu> Although largely carnivorous, they will also feed on carrion (e.g. beached whales) and also eat some vegetable matter, mainly berries and roots in the late summer, as well as kelp. Warning: Alpacas are aggressive, curious, and extremely dangerous to humans.

[16:51] <PE2BZ> If I do not connect a camera to the Pi (no PiCam and no USB cam) and I copy a jpg from an IP camera to the directory, would the tracker software pick it up and transmit it ?

[16:53] <daveake> You could also modify snapper.c to copy the file instead of creating a raspistill/fswebcam script
[16:56] <PE2BZ> That´s a great idea. Do commands like wget also work in C ?

[17:38] <FuzzyLemon> not ideal but we found it!
[17:38] <FuzzyLemon> thank you to everyone for all the tracking help
[17:40] <Ian_> Thanks for another exotic landing location FuzzyLemon. The kids will begin to expect the unexpected before long.
[17:42] <FuzzyLemon> the alpacas were amazing! Luckily they were really scared of the payload so didn't eat it
[17:46] <Ian_> They are certainly cute. My concern was that they are a bit exotic and contact with the owners before entering a field is a must. Not exactly farmers in their thinking!

[22:03] <Ian_> Me
[22:04] <Ian_> Now we need a 2016 Conference Logo for my t-shirt
[22:04] <amell> Btw if anyone needs pick up from Huntingdon railway station that can probably be arranged
[22:05] <liamcollins> conference plans are finalized!?
[22:05] <liamcollins> I think I may try to come from the US
[22:05] <Ian_> Well booking is open https://ukhas.org.uk/general:ukhasconference2016

[22:06] <Ian_> The detail of talks etc is still a work in progress.
[22:07] <liamcollins> right, very cool
[22:07] <amell> I hope to do foundation exam too.
[22:08] <liamcollins> I'm a student at Wichita State University in KS, US - could give a brief presentation on the state of amateur ballooning in the US, international influence of British enthusiasts, etc, if you guys want
[22:10] <Geoff-G8DHE> Sounds good idea! Not sure who else is organising other than Steve Randall RocketBoy on here
[22:11] <liamcollins> ok. I can throw something up on the mailing list about this too
[22:11] <amell> The UKHAS conference is the worlds premier HAB conference
[22:11] <amell> But are there any others? :)
[22:11] <liamcollins> I know, that's why I want to travel thousands of miles to come!
[22:11] <liamcollins> haha

[22:13] <RocketBoy> yeah - not too bad for me either :-)
[22:14] <adamgreig> I'm in walking distance, it's great :P
[22:14] <RocketBoy> GPSL (US) has a conference and launch
[22:15] <amell> adamgreig: I'm in bike distance :)
[22:15] <amell> Any plans to do a launch too?
[22:15] <RocketBoy> I was thinking we might do a launch too - either a demo session - or maybe a full launch on the sunday
[22:16] <RocketBoy> ?
[22:16] <Geoff-G8DHE> Sunday sounds a good idea, as I spect a few might be staying over night!
[22:16] <daveake> I've booked a hotel for the Saturday night, so I'd be up for that :)
[22:16] <Geoff-G8DHE> I was going to say will there be a suggeted hotel ?
[22:17] <daveake> Well I'm in the Arundel
[22:17] <amell> Astro also have a lot of telescopes. Maybe an opportunity for telescopes when it's dark? They do this every month. I think it usually October to March
[22:17] <daveake> Normally I'd get Rectory Farm as it's close by, but that's full
[22:17] <amell> Arundel is in town.
[22:18] <daveake> I know

[22:18] <daveake> £80
[22:18] <amell> Not bad
[22:20] <amell> You can usually book rooms at the Moller centre next door but I checked and its full, probably another conference
[22:20] <adamgreig> churchill college itself might have rooms free
[22:20] <adamgreig> probably cheaper
[22:21] <amell> adamgreig: perhaps check and post on mailing list?

[22:31] <liamcollins> not to change the subject, but I have a quick endurance ballooning puzzle
[22:31] <amell> craag: would like to put name down for foundation exam please. Thanks
[22:31] <liamcollins> yesterday I launched four blimp style balloons, along the lines of https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Battlebot-Balloon-Envelope-Airships/dp/B000PUGYVY/ref=sr_1_6?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1465597316&sr=1-6&keywords=blimp+balloon
[22:31] <liamcollins> with a habduino tracker
[22:32] <liamcollins> under 10 grams surplus lift
[22:32] <liamcollins> I've done a burst test and those things normally don't burst till about 0.85 PSI superpressure
[22:32] <liamcollins> but I still climbed to 27k ft and then lost a balloon
[22:33] <liamcollins> I was expecting to hang at around 25k ft
[22:34] <liamcollins> and thought that it should only take about 0.1 psi superpressure to overcome that surplus lift
[22:34] <liamcollins> is it possible that this is a temperature problem with the silvery balloons heating up?
[22:35] <Geoff-G8DHE> Both Leo and UBSEDS remove the alu. film and pre-stress I believe
[22:35] <liamcollins> yeah I really should have prestressed all of them
[22:36] <liamcollins> I figured since these were factory manufactured I shouldn't have to worry as much about defects
[22:37] <Geoff-G8DHE> I think thats why both have ended up making there own!
[22:37] <liamcollins> haha, fair enough!
[22:37] <amell> They are probably made enmasse in China.
[22:37] <liamcollins> true story
[22:38] <liamcollins> I am curious about the temperature effects
[22:38] <liamcollins> not exactly sure how to measure/experiment in order to determine what's going on there
[22:39] <liamcollins> I wonder if either Leo or UBSEDS have experienced burst due to temperature differences
[22:40] <amell> Leo's balloons were completely transparent from what I saw
[22:40] <Geoff-G8DHE> So are UBSEDS
[22:40] <DL7AD> amell: i agree
[22:41] <Geoff-G8DHE> http://leobodnar.com/balloons/
[22:41] <liamcollins> yeah, and I believe that is due to temperature problems
[22:41] <amell> If it says battlebots on the side and is dark I would imagine it would be subject to some heating
[22:41] <liamcollins> but till yesterday I thought it had more to do with just wanting to holding a constant altitude
[22:41] <amell> Black body radiation
[22:41] <liamcollins> lol the ones I sent weren't actually battle bots ones
[22:42] <liamcollins> mine were similar size and shape but all shiny foil color
[22:42] <liamcollins> which I thought would be reflective enough to prevent the proble

[23:46] <gtaubman> Hi Everyone. I'm in the process of designing an APRS tracker based on an Si4060, and was wondering if anyone here had any experience with designing a PCB around that chip?
[23:46] <gtaubman> Specifically, I'm reading through https://www.silabs.com/Support%20Documents/TechnicalDocs/AN627.pdf and am a little confused about which layout and L/C values to use for 169 MHz.
[23:48] <mfa298> 169MHz seems like an odd frequency to do aprs on
[23:48] <gtaubman> Sorry, that's the band that the Si4060 has that's closest to 140.390.
[23:48] <gtaubman> They have different L/C values for the 4 bands it runs on.
[23:49] <fsphil> 144.390?
[23:49] <gtaubman> As far as I've read, you design your board for the band and then you can tune to your actual desired frequency.
[23:49] <gtaubman> (Sorry, yes, fingers got away from me there :) )
