[00:25] <Ian_> Add a little weight to the line in one or two places to change the resonance.

[08:39] <gonzo_> you'll have done your intermediate before that arrives!
[08:40] <AndyEsser> ha
[08:40] <AndyEsser> still annoyed at myself for cocking up my radio call during my flight on Monday :(
[08:40] <AndyEsser> hopefully I don't do that on Friday
[08:41] <gonzo_> it's quite a mouthful
[08:41] <AndyEsser> and spending some time over on 2m having a chat might help with confidence, mayhaps
[08:41] <gonzo_> you probably practice inn the car when byou are driving listening to the local tower/radar
[08:42] <udat> AndyEsser: ahh thought you were ordering books or something, nice :)
[08:42] <fsphil> it probably takes a while to learn to speak pilot
[08:42] <AndyEsser> I totally don't do that gonzo_
[08:42] <AndyEsser> :P
[08:42] <AndyEsser> maybe I do
[08:42] <AndyEsser> haha
[08:42] <AndyEsser> I think I'm just so acutely aware that it needs to be super acurate that I get nervous and then cock up
[08:42] <gonzo_> nope, 2mtrs won't help. Tower don't wanbt to chat about the weather and traffic. Hmmm, well actually they do, just they tell you about it
[08:43] <AndyEsser> it'll give me experience chatting over the radio :)
[08:43] <gonzo_> for GA, they ayse used of pilots taking it a bit slower than commercial flights
[08:43] <AndyEsser> if anyone is around, at least
[08:43] <AndyEsser> GA?
[08:43] <gonzo_> general aviation?
[08:43] <AndyEsser> ah
[08:44] <gonzo_> I think that is what they talk of for light aircraft
[08:45] <AndyEsser> yea, I guess they know it's a flight school plane
[08:45] <AndyEsser> just don't want to mess up in front the Beluga or RAF boys :P
[08:45] <fsphil> they where all beginners once

[08:46] <gonzo_> atc talk fast to you, you don't have to reply that quick
[08:47] <AndyEsser> I'll get there :P
[08:47] <mfa298> the correct forms of communications usually help the coastgaurd/tower record the information quickly and accurately but they ought to manage if things are out of order or missing
[08:47] <AndyEsser> as you say, I've been practicing in the car :P
[08:48] <AndyEsser> need to dive into my RT book at home to get a better idea of the 'sentences'

[08:49] <Elwell> mind you, I have annoyed one or two call centre muppets - "Hi I'm ringing about my reservation, XYD123" "what was reference?" "I spell, xray, yankee delta ..." "erm wait" ...
[08:49] <AndyEsser> gah
[08:49] <AndyEsser> done that before with car reg plates - assumed the person at the other end taking reg plates all day knew their phonetic alphabet
[08:49] <Elwell> no. they don't. ever :-)
[08:50] <AndyEsser> should be taught at school
[08:50] <AndyEsser> same with 24 hour time if it isn't still
[08:50] <mfa298> some call centres seem to cope with phonetics, but others do get confused
[08:51] <mfa298> although maybe I just deal with compitant companies
[08:51] <Elwell> AndyEsser: ah, no - not in france. never ever make the mistake of saying 1pm :-)
[08:53] <AndyEsser> I avoid France nowadays :P
[08:54] <gonzo_> just quote zulu time to really confuse them
[08:54] <AndyEsser> gah, that irked me with the CFI the other day
[08:54] <AndyEsser> he started my log book in BST
[08:54] <gonzo_> Elwell, I'll remember to do just that next time I talk to the french
[08:54] <AndyEsser> and I'm like "It'll literally go back to UTC in a few weeks..."
[08:55] <gonzo_> I stick to utc (well GMT, as I prefer the name), for as much as poss. Saves confusion, well for me
[08:55] <AndyEsser> yea, I'm happy with UTC (all times should be UTC in log books etc, unless clearly marked otherwise)
[08:56] <gonzo_> used to upset the parents, when I had my bedroom clock in gmt and they popped their head around the door to see the time in the mnornings
[08:56] <AndyEsser> all my servers and what not are in UTC so I have no issue using the two interchangeably
[08:56] <gonzo_> server makes uber sense, otherwise you get issues when bst chjanges
[08:57] <AndyEsser> and typically servers serve an international audience, so having it UTC is a common base for then clients to convert to local
[08:57] <AndyEsser> with shifting the goalposts
[08:57] <fsphil> AndyEsser: I have a constant battle here with timezones. All my stuff is UTC, the other developers here use local time (so switches between gmt and bst)
[08:58] <AndyEsser> I personally think the entire world should use UTC, and disregard timezones
[08:58] <AndyEsser> of course I'm come from the location that it wouldn't really impact me too much...
[08:58] <gonzo_> we have stuff that was cloned from french servers, so it's not just DST, it;'s french dst and offset
[08:59] <AndyEsser> which doesn't have the same changeover days...
[08:59] <AndyEsser> gah
[08:59] <AndyEsser> retarded idea ST
[08:59] <fsphil> I thought the DST change is on the same day in all of the EU?
[09:00] <russss> yes, it is the same across the EU
[09:00] <AndyEsser> ah that's something at least
[09:01] <russss> whether we'll still let those unelected bureaucrats dictate when we change our British time zones once we leave is a different question...
[09:01] <russss> perhaps we'll move the date just to piss them off. That'll show them.
[09:01] <russss> :/
[09:01] <Elwell> I must say, being on UTC+8 all year round makes life simpler
[09:02] <Elwell> no daylight savings here in western australia. Other states do, but not WA for some reason
[09:02] <fsphil> no DST? that'd be nice
[09:02] <fsphil> I'd happly get rid of it here too
[09:02] <murb> russss: changing TZ rules at short notice seems to be a thing of dictators, looking at the tzdata changelog :)
[09:02] <AndyEsser> fsphil: likewise
[09:03] <russss> murb: Egypt specifically loves to do this recently
[09:03] <murb> indeed.
[09:05] <fsphil> little chance of it ever happening
[09:05] <AndyEsser> we could have a referendum
[09:06] <AndyEsser> and hope people are too stupid to inform themselves, and vote ini favour of change to "just see what happens"
[09:06] <AndyEsser> :)
[09:06] <fsphil> we need "experts" to talk about how keeping DST is great
[09:06] <russss> one piece of trivia I had overlooked until recently is that the UNIX timestamp 0 did not happen at midnight on January 1st 1970 in the UK.
[09:06] <AndyEsser> fsphil: and for the hour we save to go to the NHS
[09:06] <fsphil> hah
[09:07] <fsphil> quick, get a bus!
[09:07] <AndyEsser> haha
[09:08] <fsphil> russss: oooh yes, no switch back to GMT that year

[13:08] <gonzo_> suspect it's the 'the' that is the diffence in meaning
[13:08] <Vaizki> AndyEsser, and this is with go? :O
[13:09] <gonzo_> 'measuring code dev progress by the num,ber of lines is like measuring aircraft design in terms of weight'
[13:09] <russss> gonzo_: weirdly "boilerplate" was a typographic term first.
[13:09] <AndyEsser> Vaizki: yes
[13:11] <gonzo_> boilerplate is just standard stock. 'The' boiler plate is a specific intricate part of a boiler
[13:25] <Ian_> You shouldn't be needing to spend time writing standard boiler plate code as it's standard boiler plate code . . . maybe just fettle it for the specific application.
[13:25] <Ian_> Either that or you are misusing the term or the code. Choose one of two
[13:27] <AndyEsser> I have large swathes of code duplicated that have little alteration between each instance
[13:27] <AndyEsser> definition of boilerplate code
[13:27] <adamgreig> sounds like Go to me
[13:28] <AndyEsser> indeed
[13:28] <Ian_> Sounds like copied rather than written, sounds like boiler plate code.
[13:29] <AndyEsser> ok fine - so I haven't written each individual instance, I've been copy/pasting, modifying, and making liberal use of multi-caret editing
[13:29] <AndyEsser> I still consider this writing boilerplate, rather than business logic for example
[13:30] <Ian_> This is a bit like debugging, getting closer to the truth with every itteration
[13:30] <Ian_> :)
[13:30] <AndyEsser> I don't think my original statement was particularly untrue
[13:31] <AndyEsser> I have still had to copy or write the code into a source file, I've had to modify it, and I've had to subsequently test it
[13:31] <Ian_> Sounds like you are coding for the marketing department now!
[13:32] <Vaizki> a job security specialist would of course generate all this code with an ascii vomitorium.. aka perl
[13:32] <Ian_> :)

[14:22] <Laurenceb> grrr this is turning into an obsession
[14:22] Action: Laurenceb has created a "cheat" model of payload and balloon envelope using wind tunnel data
[14:23] <Laurenceb> so far it looks like vortex shedding by the envelope is the dominant source of payload oscillation
[14:27] <edmoore> i could have probably told you that sans model.
[14:27] <Laurenceb> heh
[14:28] <Laurenceb> well the good news is that with proper choice of payload suspension length and perhaps adding some damping, <5 degree oscillation is possible
[14:28] <Laurenceb> probably <1 degree for 95% of the time, but I'd need to spend more time on it to be confident
[14:29] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> See I knew you had the time to do it ;-)

[15:34] <nick44554> Hi Guys, just wondering if anyone knows the legalities surrounding using a Pi in the Sky system in the US?
[15:40] <daveake> 434 isn't ISM in the USA so you need a ham licence
[15:40] <adamgreig> can it do 315 or 915?
[15:40] <adamgreig> dunno if they're legal airborne or whatever
[15:41] <daveake> mtx2 won't but can add a lora board with 915
[15:43] Swecobran (~rooms@host-217-214-150-62.mobileonline.telia.com) joined #highaltitude.
[15:44] <daveake> Oh I see there's an MTX3 that will do 868; dunno if Upu is aware
[15:44] <adamgreig> MTX3, wow
[15:44] <daveake> 868 and 915 I meant to say
[15:44] <daveake> "850-950MHz version (MTX3) also available"

[15:46] <adamgreig> looks like it's still built around pulling the crystal feeding an silabs chip
[15:50] <daveake> Yeah looks very similar
[15:52] <adamgreig> maybe difference is just 868 operating band
[15:52] <nick44554> so if i had a lora board and pisky, could i operate without a ham liscence
[15:52] <nick44554> ?
[15:54] <Geoff-G8DHE> I think the ISM band is 915Mhz in the Sates, but you would need to check if aeronautical mobile is allowed on that band if so a LoRa baord with the appropriate chip on would work.
[15:54] <daveake> I believe so, but you do need to check the ISM rules for USA to be sure. The 434 side would need to be disabled in the config
[15:55] <daveake> Getting a licence is cheap and easy
[15:55] <daveake> You just need the basic one (Technician)

[17:58] <trickv> is it possible on habitat to find the transmitting frequencies / modes for an existing payload? I'm new to tracking...
[17:59] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> The payload doc will have the frequency that has been recorded on it as text.
[18:00] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> and when the payload is being tracked then trackers can upload the actual frequency they receieve it on
[18:00] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> which can be accessed like
[18:00] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> !dial ubseds18
[18:00] <SpacenearUS> 03Geoff-G8DHE-M: 03UBSEDS18 is over APRS. 144.8Mhz EU/Russia/Africa, 144.39Mhz USA, 144.64Mhz China
[18:13] bertrik (~bertrik@rockbox/developer/bertrik) joined #highaltitude.
[18:20] <trickv> Nice :) I've also found it on the export payload telemetry page on habitat which is helpful (although that shows the contestia signal spec - but UBSEDS18 is transmitting on both if I understand correctly.)
[18:21] <trickv> !dial KF5KMP-3
[18:21] <SpacenearUS> 03trickv: 03KF5KMP-3 is over APRS. 144.8Mhz EU/Russia/Africa, 144.39Mhz USA, 144.64Mhz China
[18:22] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> When its being received and uploaded by dl-fldig then you will see several frequencies shown as various receiveres will be tuned a bt different of course
[18:25] <trickv> KF5KMP-3 is interesting, I can't find a payload doc for it...I guess APRS flights don't need one?
[18:29] <Geoff-G8DHE-Tab> No they are imported, direct into spscenesrus, rather than into habitat itself.

[19:02] <pvouplin> Good evening, I was first checking how to use this interface ;-)
[19:05] <Vaizki> it seems to be going all right for you so far
[19:06] <pvouplin> I have an Arduino up and running with a HABduino. I would like to add more sensors (temp, pressure, huidity) and transmit them toghether with the coordinates (etc).
[19:06] <Vaizki> unlike my side of bacon which refuses to come up to a good internal temp and is just trying to shed all its fat in the smoker :(
[19:06] <Vaizki> first world problems galore
[19:07] <pvouplin> Forgot to add my question: anyone some experience with this?
[19:08] <Vaizki> well we have Upu here who made it... does that count?
[19:09] <pvouplin> I did find the fine description of the Titan1 mission by Bombassaro. He uses an Arduino Mega (originally not 'compatible' with the Mega).
[19:09] <Vaizki> but long story short, you have the source code for the firmware so you just need to learn to know it and then develop it fourther
[19:10] <Vaizki> further even
[19:10] <Vaizki> that's the extent of the handholding, you have a fully integrated and ready to run package on a platter, if you want to extend it then you need to dive into the deep end a bit
[19:12] <pvouplin> Okay Vaizki, I think I am able to develop further the code. But is there any advice on how to connect a second temp sensor to the Arduino Uno, with the HABDuino shield already mounted?
[19:16] <Vaizki> hmm let me see the schematic
[19:17] <Vaizki> well there seems to be a ready header on the bus that has the DS18B20 on it.. so just add more DS18B20 sensors as you need?
[19:17] <Vaizki> it's the so called "1-wire bus" (which has 3 wires in this case).. so you can put in multiple sensors
[19:19] <pvouplin> Aha, and then the functionality for reading a second temperature sensor in the HABduino becomes automatically active (while writing this I see you already gave an answer ;-)
[19:20] <pvouplin> OK, understood :-)
[19:20] <Vaizki> umm I'd have to read the code to see if a second DS18B20 is detected, read, and inserted into the telemetry string automatically
[19:21] <pvouplin> To add an air pressure sensor (or any sensor of another type) the same port cannot be used, I guess?
[19:22] <Vaizki> well it seems to support an additional temp sensor out of the box, lucky you
[19:22] <pvouplin> The code indeed detects a second temp sensor, and automatically reads, exports, ...
[19:22] <Vaizki> aye
[19:23] <Vaizki> but only one additional
[19:23] <pvouplin> Yes, indeed one additional. But that is something that I can probably extend (I realised while reading the code).
[19:24] <Vaizki> air pressure sensors are not available for 1-wire bus.. and they are not very useful anyway from what I have learned here
[19:25] <Vaizki> let me rephrase that.. the useful ones (that can show meaningful values in a near-space environment) are not the pressure sensors you'd find in those maker websites etc but expensive specialist kit
[19:26] <Vaizki> it's like saying "oh I have a multimeter" but if the voltages you're measuring are nanovolts..
[19:26] jcoxon (~jcoxon@22.251.198.146.dyn.plus.net) joined #highaltitude.
[19:28] <pvouplin> Aha (again ;-) ). I think I saw high precision pressure sensor. A little bit more expensive, but affordable (20 euro/GBP, if I remember well). But maybe even that one, claiming to be high precision might be senseless...
[19:30] <pvouplin> Thanks a lot, Vaizki - I appreciate the chat, but have to leave now. I will certainly return after delving deeper into the HABduino code, like you suggest.
