[07:42] <mfa298> ah, joining all the other places that should know better
[07:43] <mfa298> Im starting to think the best system is to signup with a crap password then change it to something after (and hope they don't email out password changes or store it in plain text)
[07:50] <nick_> If your password is unique and random then they're only screwing up your security on their system at least.
[07:55] <AndyEsser> nick_: still shouldn't be done
[07:55] <nick_> Yeah
[07:55] <AndyEsser> mfa298: suspect they'll store it in plain text, and be "heplful" by emailing it to you as well
[07:55] <nick_> But it's most dangerous for people who reuse passwords (which apparently is most people).
[07:58] <nick_> I hope that soon some physical device will also be required.
[07:58] <nick_> Although, for random old sites it'll not get used.
[07:58] <nick_> Just got to hope that the crappy old ones are accounts where security isn't really necessary.
[08:05] <mfa298> I've seen places that email the password and say it's hashed in the db so I'd hope it's hashed (can't remember about batc)

[08:15] <mfa298> I've not had any web dev classes and know more than some of these places
[08:16] <abu> Hi all, apologies as I am a beginner and will probably ask some daft questions!
[08:17] <mfa298> abu: don't worry about daft questions, it better to ask them rather than assume the wrong thing.
[08:17] <fsphil> we've all asked some daft questions here
[08:19] <abu> I am looking to launch a HAB with a PITS board, I'm planning on tracking it with a SDR (airspy r2 or mini perhaps), could anyone help me with the antenna? Build instructions or somewhere to buy one? I'm looking at getting to 35000m, and am doing it with school students as part of the STEM club so I'd rather not lose the balloon! thanks
[08:19] <mfa298> !wiki payload_antenna
[08:19] <SpacenearUS> 03mfa298: Wiki page 03payload_antenna (guides) - 12http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:payload_antenna

[08:20] <mfa298> top one is a guide for what to put on the balloon
[08:22] <abu> That's awesome thanks
[08:22] <abu> but what do i need to attach to the actual SDR dongle?
[08:23] <mfa298> for the chase car you probably want a magmount antenna.
[08:23] <mfa298> most use some sort of 2/70 amateur radio antenna
[08:24] <mfa298> yagi in the chase car might be useful as well for final position.
[08:24] <mfa298> depends abit on where you're likely to land
[08:25] <abu> I'm very sorry but where can I find a 2/70 amateur radio antenna?
[08:25] <mfa298> it's well worth tracking other flights in advance as well to get used to how it works
[08:25] <abu> good idea
[08:26] <mfa298> potentially ask if you can join someone on a chase or help them chase independantly.
[08:26] <abu> I must admit I was planning on tracking mainly from base and relaying the info to the chase car. do you think this is plausible?
[08:26] <daveake> No, chase car has to have a radio setup
[08:27] <daveake> More important than the base
[08:27] Kryczek (~kryczek@about/security/staff/Kryczek) joined #highaltitude.
[08:27] <daveake> The most important positions you get are the last one before landing, and the position after landing
[08:27] <mfa298> the base station will only get the data until it goes below the horizon. that could be when the balloon is still 2-5km above the ground
[08:27] <daveake> Both of which are the job of the chase team
[08:28] <abu> ok thanks
[08:30] <abu> so to clarify, i'll need a SDR connected to a laptop at base with a 2/70 amateur antenna (does anyone know where I can get / build one of these?), plus an SDR or radio scanner for the chase car to find final position plus mobile antenna? I will have a SMS tracker as back up though I realise those are unreliable.
[08:31] <mfa298> for the baes station various verticales are popuar (often using the colinear design)
[08:31] <daveake> Most people use colinears e.g. www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2m-70cm-Base-station-colinear-UK-supplier-/191963704425?hash=item2cb1edac69:g:v9gAAOSwDuJWuZ14
[08:31] <mfa298> things like the W-50 / X-50 mounted with a good view, and good coax between the antenna and radio.
[08:33] <mfa298> if it's a longer run of coax it may be worth looking at mounting something like the hab-amp near the antenna
[08:33] Christian_ (3e2f7276@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[08:33] <daveake> yeah get it as high as you reasonably can, but be aware that that might mean using a long stretch of coax cable it. Cheap coax though loses a lot of the signal, so if you have more than say 5m you need to be using good quality stuff
[08:34] <daveake> or, as mfa298 suggested, use an amplifier at the aerial then the coax makes a lot less difference
[08:35] <abu> I'll probably put it on the school roof and be connect directly to a laptop up there. would three stories up be sufficient?
[08:36] <mfa298> as a basic guide see what you can see from where you plan to mount it. if the view is obstructed by other buildings so will the signal from the balloon
[08:36] <daveake> What matters is having a good view of the horizon,
[08:37] <abu> The top of the building is definitely the tallest thing for miles around.
[08:37] <AndyEsser> abu: I use a Diamond X-50 from Radio World (http://www.radioworld.co.uk/diamond-x-50n_2m_70cm_fixed_station_vertical?query=diamond%20x50)
[08:38] <AndyEsser> with 10metres of RG213 (low loss) Coax
[08:38] <AndyEsser> this is good for the base station
[08:38] <AndyEsser> not suitable for the chase car
[08:38] <abu> thanks
[08:38] amell (~amell@ joined #highaltitude.
[08:39] <AndyEsser> As others have said, a magmount omni antenna is good

[08:39] <amell> Yay. Just got back from a business trip abroad and my foundation certificate is here
[08:39] <abu> ok, I will probably go with the airspy mini SDR with the above antenna or the colinear antenna from ebay for the base station
[08:39] <amell> AndyEsser: you got your callsign?
[08:41] amell (~amell@ left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[08:41] <AndyEsser> err..
[08:41] <AndyEsser> need more time to respond!
[08:42] amell (~amell@ joined #highaltitude.
[08:42] <AndyEsser> up until recently I've used an RTL-SDR for my base station SDR, it's much cheaper and seems to be ok
[08:42] <AndyEsser> although having recently used an Airspy Mini at EMF, they're fantastic little bits of kit if you have the budget for more expensive gear
[08:42] <AndyEsser> amell: not yet
[08:42] <AndyEsser> suspect it might be home when I get back this afternoon
[08:43] <amell> Certificate arrived?
[08:43] <amell> I think mine came yesterday. Not sure.
[08:43] <amell> I guess I will waste most of today trying to choose a callsign
[08:44] <fsphil> just today?
[08:44] <fsphil> that's quick
[08:44] <amell> :)
[08:44] <AndyEsser> I got home to a note from royal mail last night saying there was a package that was too large for my letterbox to pick up
[08:44] <AndyEsser> but not expecting anything, so maybe that was it?
[08:44] <amell> That's probably it
[08:44] <AndyEsser> if it's an A4 size envelope?
[08:44] <amell> It's quite big.
[08:45] <amell> You must have a small letterbox. It says do not bend
[08:45] <amell> Yes A4 cardboard backed envelope
[08:45] <AndyEsser> hmm, I've had a4 (magazines and such) before
[08:45] <AndyEsser> ah well
[08:45] <AndyEsser> will find out tonight when I get back home
[08:45] <AndyEsser> leaving work at 3pm today
[08:45] <AndyEsser> yay
[08:46] <AndyEsser> then to figure out a callsign
[08:46] <craag> lol AndyEsser
[08:46] <amell> Got all weekend to agonise over that
[08:46] <AndyEsser> ready for tomorrow at CAT16 where I imagine everyone introduces themsef with their callsign
[08:46] <craag> it's terrible
[08:46] <craag> I know
[08:46] <AndyEsser> the website?
[08:46] <AndyEsser> at least it had HTTPS...
[08:46] <craag> everything website-ish
[08:46] <craag> I've seen the code - it gets soo much worse
[08:46] <AndyEsser> please don't tell me
[08:46] <AndyEsser> please
[08:47] <AndyEsser> just don't
[08:47] <AndyEsser> I can't take any more
[08:47] <AndyEsser> have to deal with too much shite at work
[08:47] <AndyEsser> Me: "Are we not going to bother hashing the users password when we submit the login form?"
[08:47] <AndyEsser> Head of Engineering: "But it's over HTTPS it doesn't matter"
[08:47] <AndyEsser> Me: *sigh*
[08:47] <craag> Hmm that's standard practice I thought (when via POST)?
[08:48] <craag> (not hashing client side)
[08:48] <AndyEsser> nowhere I've ever been does that
[08:48] <AndyEsser> nor would I do it myself
[08:48] <AndyEsser> my basic view is... never ever ever ever transmit anything in the plain
[08:50] amell (~amell@ left irc: Quit: Colloquy for iPhone - http://colloquy.mobi
[08:51] <abu> so in the chase car I will find a mag mount omni antenna (I've had a quick look but can't seem to see one that receives 434 MHz that the PITS board would be transmitting, can anyone recommend one?), also, can anyone recommend a decent scanner for the chase car? thanks, and sorry for my total lack of knowledge!
[08:52] amell (~amell@ joined #highaltitude.
[08:52] <daveake> Look for a "2/70" magmount
[08:52] <fsphil> https://cpc.farnell.com/watson/wsm-270/wsm-270-mini-mag-antenna/dp/IT44456
[08:52] <daveake> The 70 is 70cm which is the approx wavelength for 434MHz
[08:53] <craag> AndyEsser: Hmm it's not plain though, it's in SSL. And of course you'd then need to hash the password again for storage.
[08:53] <daveake> List of radios/scanners here https://ukhas.org.uk/guides:tracking_guide
[08:53] <craag> Anyway can have this discussion post- my relevant talk tomorrow ;)
[08:54] <fsphil> yes hasing client side is probably pointless. just require https.
[08:56] <AndyEsser> you're both assuming that https in fallible
[08:56] <AndyEsser> but yes craag - over a beer tomorrow instead
[08:56] <craag> :)
[08:56] <AndyEsser> also assuming it's HTTPs end-to-end
[08:56] <fsphil> https is less likely to fail than anything I could cobble together
[08:57] <craag> also all you're doing is transforming the password, If I sniff that hash, I can just replay it to log in, exactly like I would with the plaintext
[08:57] <AndyEsser> yes - but as noted above, users use the same password everywhere
[08:57] <AndyEsser> by hashing it, you're only able to use it inn places that hash the same way
[08:57] <AndyEsser> rather than Password1234
[08:58] <AndyEsser> I need new batteries in my keyboard....
[08:58] <craag> so it protects them for other sites (assuming a secure hash!) but not yours...
[08:58] <amell> I agree with craag - SSL is all you need
[08:58] <fsphil> I banned any password that contains the word password
[08:58] Action: AndyEsser sits in the corner and sulks
[09:00] <abu> thanks. another stupid question I'm afraid. with the mag mount antenna attached to a SDR. Would I need an internet connect for my laptop in the chase car?
[09:00] <fsphil> SSL isn't usually the weakness, it's the code running the website :)
[09:00] <fsphil> abu: ideally yes

[12:27] <udat> guess they don't let you swap ? hate mine
[12:27] <abu> Hi again everyone, what type of coax would I need if it was to be longer than 5m. Thanks
[12:28] <abu> worried about losing signal
[12:29] <mfa298> how big is your budget ?
[12:30] <mfa298> RG213 is probably a decent starting point, after that probably westflex 103 or aircell
[12:30] <abu> I'm working for a school so the budget isn't massive!
[12:31] <daveake> What length, roughly?
[12:32] <mfa298> you should be able to find loss figures for any decent coax, RG213 looks to be around 0.17dB/m at 450mhz, from that you can work out loss for a run of x meters. Then decide if that loss is acceptable
[12:32] <daveake> plenty of calculators around e.g. http://www.qsl.net/co8tw/Coax_Calculator.htm
[12:33] <abu> to do what I want to, potentially 15-20m. Though we could do shorter but it would involve sitting on the roof. which is a possibility
[12:35] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> You can guarantee it will be a nice dry day all day on the day of the flight ?
[12:37] <mfa298> for 20m rg213 would have around 3.4dB loss which might be acceptable. Westflex 103 is more like 1.5dB which most would probably think is acceptable (although that's a bit more fun to put the connectors onto and costs more for cable and connectors)
[12:37] <abu> Well we are in the UK so I assumed sunshine was a given!
[12:38] <daveake> Well, 20m of RG58 will cost ~£15, but the loss is 6dB so you'll receive 1/4 of the signal from the aerial. Which, to be honest, isn't that bad if your flight is fairly close to you
[12:38] <daveake> RG213 is half the loss but double the price
[12:38] <daveake> For a permanent installation the extra money is a good investment; for a 1-off, meh not so sure
[12:39] <mfa298> and for the money you save with rg58 you could buy a habamp (means the setup is limited to receiving on the 434MHz band though - which is all you need for balloon tracking)

[13:11] <AndyEsser> ex VAT as it's a company expense
[13:11] <fsphil> it's not as good at reducing voice
[13:12] <AndyEsser> Yea, suspect they're designed to let human voice frequencies through so you can still talk
[13:12] <fsphil> there's a background hiss too, which I can't hear when playing music but if it's total silence you're after it might get annoying

[13:25] <AndyEsser> one day I'll see what if my instructor will let me play music through them to test the auto cut-out and stuff
[13:31] <adamgreig> AndyEsser: bit late to this bandwagon but nobody hashes clientside :P
[13:31] <Ian_> Better asked later if you were to ask me. BTW both callsigns have a nice CW rythm too
[13:31] <adamgreig> if you're worried about SSL being broken you have bigger concerns. like how your hash algorithm is probably also broken as a result.
[13:32] <AndyEsser> "nobody"?
[13:32] <AndyEsser> You all have valid points
[13:32] <AndyEsser> I'm going to continue hashing clientside
[13:35] <adamgreig> i recommend googling "hashing client side" for some discussions
[13:36] <adamgreig> I think literally the only benefit is that if a) a user re-uses a password on your website _and_ b) your TLS traffic is being decrypted and sniffed then the sniffer can't reuse that password on someone else's website, probably
[13:37] <adamgreig> but if they can break the TLS they can almost-surely inject javascript in to the page, which i assume you're not verifying the integrity of, and have it just send the password directly
[13:37] <adamgreig> and in any event it adds no security to your own system, of course
[13:37] <adamgreig> and it breaks anyone without client side javascript turned on, for starters

[13:39] <AndyEsser> people without client side js turned on won't be able to use any of my sites anyway
[13:39] <adamgreig> smarter might be something like, the server sends a seed, client picks a second seed, hashes password+seed1+seed2, server repeats the hash, then you don't even need TLS turned on!
[13:40] Hix (~hix@2a02:c7f:7e22:a200:a48c:cd24:ae:63fb) joined #highaltitude.
[13:40] <adamgreig> but it's now much more likely the mysterious adversary knows your hash than in the TLS case, and so you need to do a decent hashing algorithm on the client, which by definition will be much weaker than you can do on your server, assuming something sensible like pbkdf2
[13:40] <adamgreig> it's just kind of a wash
[13:41] <NormalGaussian> @adamgreig I dare not ask what horrors you are discussing...
[13:41] <adamgreig> the merits (or lack thereof) of clientside password hashing on websites
[13:41] <AndyEsser> adamgreig: as I said above - you all have valid points
[13:42] <AndyEsser> and I wasn't suggesting a tin-foil hat style "HTTPS is broken by the governments" type thing
[13:42] <AndyEsser> just that MITM attacks when you control the Access Point etc, are fairly trivial
[13:42] <adamgreig> are they?
[13:42] <AndyEsser> it just doesn't sit right with me sending plaintext stuff (in terms of the API call has it plaintext)
[13:42] <adamgreig> I mean, they're not, right
[13:43] <adamgreig> the only way you can break HTTPS is if you own the client device as well
[13:43] <AndyEsser> at my last job, the HTTPS connection terminated on the local proxy
[13:43] <adamgreig> at which point obviously nothing you do on your website helps
[13:43] <adamgreig> yep, sure, because the company installed its own certs on all the clients
[13:43] <AndyEsser> I have no guarantee that the outgoing connection then is valid
[13:43] <AndyEsser> with things like SSL Pinning and whatnot, you can kind of ensure stuff is pretty secure from your server end
[13:43] <AndyEsser> anyway, it's an academic discussion
[13:43] <AndyEsser> we're not Yahoo

[13:50] <NormalGaussian> Surely without implementing some form of certificate/authentication for your plaintext data 'encryption' you are no more secure than relying on HTTPS, and distributing any non-http based certificates is infeasible unless it is done over the web which renders it ineffective anyway?

[18:46] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> if you talking to a friend some changeover I fall back just to the last tree letters
[18:48] <adamgreig> but in general no, and the licence says you have to use your (full) callsign every so often for identing
[18:48] <adamgreig> M6RND is not the same as M0RND, etc
[18:48] <adamgreig> I recommend just getting a short callsign instead
[18:50] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> here in Sweden there is only one three letter combination so when you travel you can ad the correct area nr withot any confusion

[19:00] <OZ1SKY_Brian> hi
[19:00] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Anyone here tracking the WSPR ballons?
[19:02] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> the fine thing with wspr is you track without knowing :)
[19:02] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Tjena. But how does it get to habhub?
[19:02] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> I will have a new try to get a wspr balloon up this sunday
[19:03] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> script to aprs.fi the imported to habhub
[19:03] <OZ1SKY_Brian> is it automated in the WSPR software or?
[19:03] <OZ1SKY_Brian> meaning WSPR software by K1JT
[19:04] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> nop, you have to run server and read the reports from wspr network , translete them and port them to aprs.fi
[19:04] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> there is some xls that can automate that
[19:05] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ok was looking for some unattended way to run it
[19:05] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> you can read up here http://www.qrp-labs.com/ultimate3/ve3kcl-balloons/ve3kcl-s4.html#protocol
[19:07] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> David (Rebounder) have made a script, he is running so ve3kcl aka The S balloons get on the tracker, S-17 being the latest
[19:07] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yes i read that, but it looks like a manuel way, not something that can run unattended
[19:07] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> nop its automated
[19:08] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> what I have understod , the xls takes data from the wspr database
[19:09] <OZ1SKY_Brian> dont understand how a spreadsheet can take data from anything automatic
[19:09] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> and autmate transfers it to aprs.fi, ping Davi, he can explain more in detail how he is doing it
[19:10] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> I dont know ether, but someone said the xls can be made reading a databse and merge/transle and present it all automated
[19:11] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> I will investigate it further as Im about to launch some wspr balloons, but not fore the next one, have to read up a litte bit to
[19:11] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> :
[19:12] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ok, done not seem very user frindly, meaning very few trackers as a result
[19:12] <OZ1SKY_Brian> does
[19:13] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> few trackers?
[19:14] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yes few people tracking them and uploading data
[19:14] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> all wspr rx station that is hearing the balon is reporting it, they dony care its ablloon as long as its a walid wspr sequnce
[19:15] <OZ1SKY_Brian> im lost now, didnt you just say you need a spreadsheet and some way to upload it, to be able to track it?
[19:15] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> it usuly just the one person who launch the baloon that run the databse, its collect all the spots from all the network so there
[19:15] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> should realy just be one station ralayng it
[19:15] <OZ1SKY_Brian> or do i just need the WSPR software and thats it?
[19:16] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> yes
[19:16] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> the person behind the ballooon collects the spots and upload them
[19:16] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ok then no problem, just the one info i needed :-)
[19:16] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> :)
[19:17] <OZ1SKY_Brian> if i could just get it to decode something LOL
[19:17] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> you have never decoded wspr ?
[19:17] <OZ1SKY_Brian> waterfall got signals, but decode window nothing
[19:18] <OZ1SKY_Brian> got WSPR 2.0 and WSJT-X 1.6 running, nothing decoded
[19:18] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> you have the signals in the 200hz window 1500hz + - 100hz
[19:19] <OZ1SKY_Brian> tuned to 14095.6 USB 2.4KHz filter
[19:19] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> that should do it
[19:20] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> and you see the signals around 1500hz ?
[19:20] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> and it says wspr2
[19:20] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> NOT wspr15
[19:21] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yes WSPR-2
[19:21] <SA6BSS-Mike|2> http://imgur.com/a/0ypfG
[19:22] <OZ1SKY_Brian> correct
