[12:46] SP9UOB-Tom (~verox@matrix.verox.pl) joined #highaltitude.
[12:47] <JC___> Where it says 'launch altitude' - does that mean height above sea level, or height above ground at those coordinates?
[12:47] <fsphil> sea level
[12:47] <fsphil> all altitudes it uses are
[12:48] <JC___> Thanks
[12:48] <fsphil> which can play tricks on your if you land somewhere very high up
[12:48] <AndyEsser> about to attempt another NOAA image :)
[12:49] <fsphil> AndyEsser: what frequency? might have a listen myself
[12:49] <AndyEsser> 137.100
[12:49] <AndyEsser> 34kHZ WFM
[12:50] <JC___> I'm also not too sure about what to enter in the 'descent rate' box. Any tips?
[12:50] <SA6BSS-Mike> fsphil: its stoped tx ing
[12:50] <fsphil> SA6BSS-Mike: hah, oops
[12:50] <SA6BSS-Mike> its only on for 2x 40min a year
[12:50] <SA6BSS-Mike> next tx will be christmas day
[12:51] <AndyEsser> note to self... remember to set wxtoimg to use the correct audio input device *sigh*
[12:51] <SA6BSS-Mike> 2x40 two days a year a mrong tx and a midday tx firs sunday july and cristmas day
[12:51] <SA6BSS-Mike> *morning
[12:53] <fsphil> JC___: "depends". most people aim for a 5m/s descent rate, but your actual rate will depend on your chute, payload weight, and other things
[12:53] <SA6BSS-Mike> running airspy and spyverter, why does i look like thishttp://www.qsl.net/sa6bss/
[12:53] <fsphil> my airspy has decided not to work on my desktop pc again
[12:53] <daveake> at all?
[12:54] <fsphil> airspy_info is detecting it, gqrx lists it but not getting any signal or data
[12:54] <SA6BSS-Mike> should look like this https://www.dropbox.com/s/0onk1v5zltmwlsw/argo22822.jpg?dl=0
[12:54] <daveake> any chance it's got the wrong usb driver?
[12:54] <AndyEsser> it would appear that the location of my antenna now isn't great for this NOAA pass :(
[12:54] <daveake> Worth checking with zadig
[12:55] <daveake> oh you're Linux not Windows?
[12:55] <fsphil> yeah
[12:55] <daveake> if so I have no idea :)
[12:55] <fsphil> usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usbfs while 'gqrx' sets config #1
[12:55] <fsphil> no idea if this is even an error
[12:56] <JC___> If I use 5 m/s, it looks OK to launch, but 3 m/s and it lands in the sea!
[12:56] <fsphil> ah it's working now
[12:56] <fsphil> *shrugs*
[12:56] <daveake> 5m/s is the usual speed to aim for anyway
[12:57] <daveake> woo
[12:57] <SA6BSS-Mike> must be something wrong with the spyverter, airspy for it self works great
[12:58] <SA6BSS-Mike> its like the oscilator in the spyverter does not lock
[12:58] <JC___> We've got a 600 g payload on a 50 inch chute. What do you reckon? My thinking is that it's not an unusual mass/diameter, so probs be ok assuming 5 m/s
[12:58] <JC___> Or is that silly?
[12:58] <daveake> Waaaay too large a chute
[12:58] <SA6BSS-Mike> https://www.dropbox.com/s/g9oehn0to3u2xr9/2016-07-03%2014_58_30-WSJT-X%20-%2010%20-%20Wide%20Graph.jpg?dl=0
[12:59] <daveake> Did you just guess at 50 or try to calculate the size you need first?
[13:00] <daveake> Off the top of my head, 50 is about right for a 3kg payload
[13:00] <JC___> We are amateurs (first launch) and bought this chute: http://sentintospace.com/products-page/flight-components/parachute/#ad-image-0
[13:02] <daveake> Did they (sentintospace) provide any information as to its suitablility?
[13:02] <JC___> No. It has been an oversight
[13:02] <fsphil> that is huge
[13:02] <daveake> Well I suggest you use a supplier who does
[13:02] <daveake> http://randomsolutions.co.uk/Random_Aerospace/Parachutes.html
[13:02] <daveake> You'll see a calculator at the bottom of that page
[13:03] <daveake> and if you use it, you'll find that you need a 30" chute
[13:03] <fsphil> heh, that calculator isn't displaying correctly here
[13:03] <JC___> Thanks daveake!
[13:04] <JC___> Might have to adapt our current chute to make it smaller, perhaps some duct tape
[13:05] <adamgreig> hah

[13:05] <fsphil> AndyEsser: got nothing

[13:07] <fsphil> JC___: oh yes :)
[13:08] <fsphil> they are quite well known for giving people the silent treatment
[13:08] <JC___> Mmm... makes me very nervous. What do you recommend? Ringing?
[13:08] <fsphil> up until days before, sometimes needing a polite poke
[13:08] <fsphil> or in one of my causes, a few days after the target date
[13:08] <fsphil> cases*
[13:08] <adamgreig> they will usually reply the day or two before
[13:08] <adamgreig> not usually earlier than that
[13:09] <fsphil> I wouldn't worry until T-2 days, then send them a reminder
[13:09] <JC___> I rang them after about 5 days before the 28, and they said they were 'busy'! I'm now on day 30
[13:09] <adamgreig> what date is on your form?
[13:09] <adamgreig> it's more about days til launch than days since application
[13:09] <adamgreig> they are very very busy people and prioritise the stuff happening soon
[13:09] <JC___> A two-week window from 01 Jul
[13:10] <adamgreig> ah, if they are already into the window then that's a slightly different matter, though two weeks is pretty long
[13:10] <JC___> When I rang they said two weeks would be OK
[13:11] <JC___> But still, I want to ring, just don't want to be a pest

[13:43] <SpacenearUS> New position from 03W5LCY-7 after 03a day silence - 12http://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=W5LCY-7
[13:46] Laurenceb__ (~laurence@ joined #highaltitude.
[13:52] <daveake> JC___: With a 2-week window you've potentially got 2 weeks of pilots rining up to ask exactly when you're launching your balloon
[13:53] <daveake> One of the reasons I just request a single day, or sometimes ask for 2-3 days but then narrow it down with an email 2-3 days before the window starts
[13:54] <JC___> I don't know how the process works as it's the first time i've done it. When I rang though, they said it's fine to have a 2 week window on the application
[13:54] <daveake> And I always send an email remind 2-3 days prior anyway, if only to confirm (and make sure my application doesn't get forgotten)
[13:55] <daveake> Depends where you are relative to airports and flight paths
[13:57] azstefano (~azstefano@unaffiliated/azstefano) joined #highaltitude.
[13:57] <JC___> I thought that it was the launchers responsibility to contact the CAA when about to launch, rather than having a constant barrage of pilots ringing the CAA to ask if they've heard anything. The CAA then issue a 'notice to airmen' - which i presume is a sort of broadcast to all
[13:58] <daveake> I mean the pilots will call *you*
[13:58] <JC___> Oh!
[13:59] <daveake> They'll see the NOTAM, think to themselves "dammit that's going to cost me any extra £20 in fuel and 15 minutes in flight time", and will call to ask exactly when you'll be launching
[14:00] <daveake> of course you won't know the exact time (launches usually run late) but you may well be able to help them with "oh, not launching to midday or later" or "not today at alL"
[14:00] <SP9UOB-Tom> daveake: according to air law - the ballon always has priority ;-)
[14:01] <daveake> ofc but it helps to be helpful
[14:01] <daveake> don't want pilots complaining about damn silly balloon notams when they think they own the skies :p
[14:01] <AndyEsser> SP9UOB-Tom: in the same way that wind powered vessles have priority over powered boats?
[14:01] <AndyEsser> but I'm not going to mess with an oil tanker when I'm in my Pico
[14:01] <daveake> Plus, it's always fun when they ask how high it's going
[14:02] <JC___> I tried ringing the CAA but I get a 'sorry we're busy at the moment, leave a message'
[14:02] <daveake> "about 120,000 feet"
[14:02] <SIbot> In real units: 120,000 ft = 36.6 km
[14:02] <daveake> <silence for a minute>
[14:02] <AndyEsser> daveake: ha yea
[14:02] <AndyEsser> can imagine
[14:02] <daveake> My last call asked if it was going towards Abergavenny
[14:02] <SP9UOB-Tom> AndyEsser: yes, priority is Balloons, Gliders, powered aircrafts
[14:02] <daveake> "Yes but it'll be at 120,000 feet when it gets there"
[14:02] <SIbot> In real units: 120,000 ft = 36.6 km
[14:02] <daveake> "oh"
[14:03] <daveake> p.s. always give them feet they don't do metres

[14:03] <AndyEsser> fsphil: next NOAA 19 pass is 14:29 UTC
[14:04] <AndyEsser> that fact it's the same satellite passing again suggests it was very North
[14:04] <fsphil> hmm I was about to go out, but can delay

[14:06] <daveake> Sadly it's changed now
[14:06] <JC___> Ha
[14:06] <fsphil> I still hope to get a call about it
[14:07] <fsphil> my number is on the side

[14:10] <daveake> Like I said, I put in the application, confirm/change/cancel 2-3 days prior to the launch day, then leave it. 100% success rate so far :)
[14:10] <daveake> Remember they do get pretty busy in the summer months with airshows etc
[14:11] <JC___> daveake: it's just that we're now in the window we applied for, and I did ring them a few days before, but now they've not got back
[14:11] <daveake> call them tomorrow morning then

[16:44] <samme> Hi. I would like to know if there is a specific pattern for transmitting data like time,latitude, longitude, altitude?
[16:45] <samme> RTTY dl-fldigi
[16:46] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> https://ukhas.org.uk/communication:protocol?s[]=ukhas&s[]=protocol
[16:47] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> you can however configure Habitat to recognise almost whatever you like
[16:48] <mfa298> the key bits are "$$CALLSIGN,...*checksum". you can have whatever fields you want in the middle
[16:51] Nick change: mattbrej1a -> mattbrejza
[16:54] <samme> callsign is assigned by?
[16:57] <mfa298> you can choose it yourself, athough you might want to check it's not been used previosuly
[16:58] <mfa298> that assumes you're doign this somewhere that 434MHz is an ISM band and your working on those rules
[16:59] <samme> didnt get the last part :/
[17:01] <mfa298> 434MHz isn't an ISM band in some of the world, but it is an Amateur Radio band so people in those locations run under an AR license which requires the callsign to be their licensed callsign.
[17:01] JC___ (d923f5fd@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[17:01] <mfa298> assuming your UK then it's ISM so you can choose your own, (although recommended not to make it look like a AR call sign)
[17:02] <samme> yes in UK, how to make sure it doesnt look lik AR callsign?
[17:03] <mfa298> chances are what you choose will be fine
[17:03] <samme> got it. thanks !
[17:04] <samme> one other question, is patch antenna good or one with SMA GPS antenna?

[17:12] <adamgreig> well if your payload box is made of metal then sure it will have problems...
[17:12] <adamgreig> but that would be the case for any antenna
[17:12] <adamgreig> a patch on the top, or a helical antenna sticking out, or a box made of foam with whatever inside, should all be ok

[17:16] <JC___> Hello! Quick question. I'm looking at the parachute calculator on http://randomsolutions.co.uk/Random_Aerospace/Parachutes.html and was wondering: how is a parachute actually measured? E.g. is it simply the diameter of the opening?
[17:18] Ian_ (4d66af83@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[17:19] <daveake> That calculator is for specific parachutes, so it depends on how the manufacturer measures them. For the Spherachutes it's half the circumference.
[17:24] Jerry (5faa14ae@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[17:38] <JC___> Mmm... in that case, I don't suppose anyone knows where I can find the formula that is used by the calculator on http://randomsolutions.co.uk/Random_Aerospace/Parachutes.html ?
[17:41] <JC___> The website I bought my chute from says it's 50 inch, but I've just measured the diameter now as 28 inch (70 cm), and this online calc (http://descentratecalculator.onlinetesting.net/) gives a descent rate of 5.6 m/s, so seems OK
[17:41] <PE2BZ> I guess it´s this part of the source from that same page:
[17:41] <PE2BZ> function rate(form)
[17:41] <PE2BZ> {
[17:41] <PE2BZ> var ca = form.CdA.value;
[17:41] <PE2BZ> var pw = parseFloat(form.PayloadWeight.value, 10);
[17:41] <PE2BZ> var g = 9.81; // acceleration due to gravety
[17:41] <PE2BZ> var rho = 1.21; // sea level air density (Kg/cu m)
[17:41] <PE2BZ> var r = 0;
[17:41] <PE2BZ> // calculate descent rate
[17:41] <PE2BZ> r = Math.sqrt((pw * g) / (0.5 * rho * ca));
[17:41] <PE2BZ> form.Rate.value = r.toPrecision(3);
[17:41] <PE2BZ> }
[17:54] <daveake> You need the CdA value for your chute. I suggest you ask your supplier.
