[09:53] <jjjjbrown> hi
[09:54] <AndyEsser> boo
[09:54] <jjjjbrown> I was wondering if anyone could lend me some help. Im launching a balloon with the science club at the school I teach at
[09:55] <jjjjbrown> only thing im really struggling with is the GPS tracker as we really dont have much of a budget - have already got cameras sorted
[09:55] <jjjjbrown> launching from the UK so don't think it can go too high either as otherwise it will land somewhere in europe!!!
[09:55] <AndyEsser> if your budget restrained, and don't have the skills/resources to build one yourself
[09:55] <AndyEsser> I'd highly recommend a PITS (Pi In The Sky)
[09:56] <jjjjbrown> nice already have a pi so that could work well
[09:57] <mfa298> jjjjbrown: if you've not found it yet http://predict.habhub.org/ will give an idea of where a flight will land with the current winds
[09:58] SA6BSS-Mike (~kvirc@217-208-25-231-no166.bredband.skanova.com) left irc: Ping timeout: 260 seconds
[09:58] <mfa298> it's possible to have flights land within the UK and go high.
[09:58] <mfa298> although that varies with time of year
[09:58] <mfa298> occasionally people have had them land within a few miles of the launch although thats rare
[09:59] <jjjjbrown> i did that but it predicted that if i went to 100,000ft it would land in poland....
[09:59] <SIbot> In real units: 100,000 ft = 30.5 km
[09:59] <jjjjbrown> what size balloon would you guys recommend for first time ballooner
[10:00] <AndyEsser> That depends on what you want to send up
[10:01] <mfa298> jjjjbrown: standard profile is 5m/s ascent and descent rates.
[10:01] <jjjjbrown> we're just sending 2 gopros, a phone streaming facebook live, a phone with GPS tracker as backup and now a Pi for GPS tracking
[10:02] <AndyEsser> a phone streaming?
[10:02] <mfa298> currently 30km, 5up, 5 down doesn't go that far. (I tried from cambridge and ir predicts landing near norwich)
[10:02] <SpeedEvil> phone streaming is not likely to work over a hundred meters or two
[10:02] <gonzo_> if you can make a tracker small/light enough, then going for a 100gm latex or foil balloons could be a good start. They only need small disposable gas bottles and you can (with planning) keep below the limits required for a NOTAM. So you can launch whenever convenient
[10:02] <SpeedEvil> maybe more if you get lucky
[10:02] <jjjjbrown> yeah i understand that but its just for fun for the kids to be able to watch the launch
[10:02] <mfa298> phone probably won't do anything useful most of the flight. you won't have a mobile connection once it's left the ground and potentially not after it's landed
[10:03] <jjjjbrown> ah fair enough
[10:04] <gonzo_> Ah, that's a lot of payload! Suggest starting with small balloons and payloads to get the hand of it (and make sure that your trackers are reliable, if you are flying lots of expensive cams that you will want back)
[10:04] <mfa298> you should choose the balloon based on what weight it's lifting and how high it goes http://habhub.org/calc/ can help with that.
[10:05] <mfa298> aim for somethign that gives 5m/s ascent and then choose a parachute that gives around 5m/s descent.
[10:05] <mfa298> also if it gets too heavy (2kg) you start getting into more requirements (from what I remember of what Steve posted a while ago)
[10:05] <jjjjbrown> amazing thats enough to get the ball rolling i think
[10:06] <jjjjbrown> will keep it light and small for the first time
[10:06] <gonzo_> jjjjbrown, are you in the UK? If so, where abouts?
[10:06] <jjjjbrown> brighton, but gonna launch from the midlands to avoid the sea
[10:06] <mfa298> jjjjbrown: it's worth hanging around here when you can and keep an eye on the mailing list.
[10:07] <jjjjbrown> currently at work but will set it up on my pc when i get home
[10:07] <AndyEsser> jjjjbrown: even if your plan is to do a larger launch with the kids
[10:07] <mfa298> if you're able to get a radio receiver going soon that's always good there's often some flights happening.
[10:07] <AndyEsser> try and do some small pico launches yourself
[10:07] <AndyEsser> to get a handle on it
[10:07] <AndyEsser> and the systems used etc
[10:07] <AndyEsser> and definitely what mfa298 suggested
[10:07] <AndyEsser> tracking other flights really helps understand things
[10:08] <AndyEsser> especially if you can then go out and help dig it out of a field
[10:08] <jjjjbrown> really good idea
[10:08] <mfa298> it looks like Barc are launching later today, and daveake has one planned for the weekend (although I think that's lora only)
[10:08] <AndyEsser> (or wander around in the rain for 2 hours - like I did once - and failed to find the payload)
[10:08] <jjjjbrown> gotta bounce need to teach stem cells!
[10:08] <jjjjbrown> will come back here later on
[10:08] <jjjjbrown> thanks so much for all the help guys/gals

[10:09] <gonzo_> if you can get the payload weight down below... say 100g, then you can launch what we call a 'pico' balloon. That is basically one that will stay <2mtrs size at any point in the flight. That will not need any CAA approvals/launch time/location limitations. So you can launch whenever convenient. possibly when you see the predicted path going somewhere convceneint
[10:09] <gonzo_> teaching the subject of stem cells, or is that the description of the kids?!

[10:11] <gonzo_> given the numnber of school launches that have not gone well, I recon it's worth encouraging them to do a simple tracker only pico

[11:50] <daveake> Swapped that with a spare; I'll look deeper soon
[11:51] <daveake> The timing is /slightly/ out in that case as I put in 500ms for the packet time, and it's slightly shorter, but it's plenty accurate enough given I have 2-second slots

[12:59] <daveake> window is 10am to 4pm but probably 11am
[12:59] <daveake> There's also a student flight from here on Sunday; waiting for the radio details on that one
[13:01] <Ian_> Many thanks Dave. I'm looking to be online for this one and will investigate the options. Laters :)
[13:02] <mfa298> daveake: do you have a prediction handy for what the flight might look like
[13:04] <daveake> http://predict.habhub.org/#!/uuid=6b62880de6703bf3f9446c1823cca4cd9816e58a
[13:05] <daveake> Very dependent on max altitude ... e.g. http://predict.habhub.org/#!/uuid=10c446962e0673b1e590ce7d3e5978929dcecc08
[13:05] <daveake> them be fast winds up there
[13:06] <daveake> might be tempted to send it high but with a longitude-triggered cutdown
[13:09] <Ian_> That sounds like a plan - cutdown restricting east or west?
[13:09] <daveake> east
[13:15] <daveake> That works out as 160mph at higher altitudes, so it'll be difficult to predict the landing without doing a cutdown

[21:11] <AndyEsser> any linux people here run an airspy?
[21:12] <dbrooke> yes
[21:14] <AndyEsser> dbrooke: good SDR program to use?
[21:14] <AndyEsser> just download gqrx atm
[21:14] <AndyEsser> downloading*
[21:15] <dbrooke> that's what I use, not sure there's much choice
[21:16] <AndyEsser> ok cool
[21:16] <dbrooke> but recent versions are decent enough
[21:16] <AndyEsser> don't suppose there's an SDR Console Server equivalent for linux?
[21:17] <Vaizki> nope
[21:17] <AndyEsser> groan
[21:17] <AndyEsser> fine!
[21:17] <AndyEsser> I'll add it to the list :P
[21:17] <Vaizki> only reason I got a windows machine at home was SDRs .. :(
[21:17] <AndyEsser> with a Pi3 and airspy up and running
[21:17] <AndyEsser> thinking sticking them in a waterproof box, attached to the X50 antenna
[21:17] <AndyEsser> complete standalone unit
[21:18] <AndyEsser> would be interesting to see if how long it would take for a solar panel to charge something like a 20000mAh USB power pack and if that could leave it compliant standalone - just connected to wifi (or a 4g dongle)
[21:18] <AndyEsser> s/compliant/completely
[21:19] YO9GJX (~YO9GJX@109.102.153.76) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[21:19] <Vaizki> just say 20Ah so I don't need to kill you
[21:19] <AndyEsser> :)
[21:19] <AndyEsser> they're listed on amazon in mAh - sorry :P
[21:19] <SpeedEvil> AndyEsser: I did the numbers for how much solar panel it would take here in scotland to keep a 2.5W constant load running.
[21:19] <Vaizki> or even better 100Wh
[21:19] <SpeedEvil> It's about 250W, and a 100Ah/12V battery.
[21:19] <Vaizki> well actually they are not calculated at 5V which is the input/output voltage
[21:19] <SpeedEvil> And it still might die if febuary is especially dull
[21:20] <Vaizki> they sell them based on the primary lipo Ah
[21:20] <AndyEsser> SpeedEvil: yea... sunlight isn't exactly that plentiful in this part of the world :)
[21:20] <SpeedEvil> I have a slightly silly collection of lithium bats now.
[21:20] <SpeedEvil> Due to having bought 10 broken hoverboards for robotty parts.
[21:20] <AndyEsser> *groan*
[21:20] <AndyEsser> shame I can't run gqrx over ssh
[21:21] <AndyEsser> gf has taken tv back to watch I'm a Celebrity
[21:21] <Vaizki> eject
[21:21] <AndyEsser> should've remembered to ring a monitor with me :(
[21:21] <AndyEsser> bring*
[21:21] <AndyEsser> suppose I should get dl-fldigi installed as well
[21:22] <Vaizki> I would put openwebrx on the pi3 and run dl-fldigi on whatever machine you use to access it..
[21:23] <Vaizki> actually hey that's exactly what I did.. :)
[21:23] <AndyEsser> Vaizki: how does that work?
[21:23] <AndyEsser> what does openwebrx do?
[21:23] <AndyEsser> that's exactly the sort of situation I'd likely do
[21:23] <Vaizki> it's a web sdr
[21:23] <AndyEsser> fldigi running on my windows laptop etc
[21:23] <Vaizki> multiple users etc.. it demodulates and runs audio to your browser
[21:24] <dbrooke> if you use the new dl-fldigi it supports UDP 'audio' from gqrx which save faffing around with audio routing and presumably can be sent over the network, though I've not tried the latter
[21:24] <AndyEsser> dbrooke: ah yes, much nicer
[21:24] <AndyEsser> the UDP or a TCP Stream connection was something I was definitely going to have in my RTTY demod
[21:25] <Vaizki> AndyEsser: try this for example http://sdr.webshed.org:8073/
[21:25] <Vaizki> that's openwebrx .. well the kiwisdr pimped up version of it
[21:25] rjsnyder (~rjsnyder@p5B297FAA.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[21:26] <Vaizki> but admittedly gqrx etc would for a single user use case offer more convenient tuning, gain control etc
[21:27] <Vaizki> just a real pain to use remotely
[21:28] <AndyEsser> just managed to try and run up gqrx when gf was taking 2 year old to loo

[21:33] <AndyEsser> is that it?

[21:33] <AndyEsser> prog: is libairspy what I'd use to have an RTTY demod receive the IQ direct from the airpsy?
[21:33] <prog> imo, get the latest gqrx and you should be running
[21:33] <prog> it's the user mode driver
[21:34] <AndyEsser> yea, I was just double checking that, it's version 2.6 that I've downloaded, which does say it has the airspy drivers
[21:34] <AndyEsser> so suspect I've done something silly
[21:34] <Vaizki> AndyEsser: you could also just use airspy_rx and pipe samples from it.. works a treat
[21:35] <prog> try airspy_rx -r /dev/null -t 0
[21:35] <prog> sudo it if not working
[21:35] <AndyEsser> suspect I need to download or install something first?

[23:24] <sam_uk> Hi I'm trying to share 20Mb a day of data over 5miles, can Moteino & your software help me do this? It's to share the data from Lantern devices in disasters https://outernet.is/tech

[23:41] <michal_f> sam_uk, you can connect radio module to arduino and send data with RTTY coding
[23:41] <michal_f> https://ukhas.org.uk/guides:linkingarduinotontx2
[23:43] <michal_f> you would then need a PC with radio (ie. RTL-SDR) and decoder like fldigi
[23:43] <michal_f> on the other end
[23:45] <michal_f> there are more efficient methods, but this one is simplest
[23:49] <sam_uk> michal_f: thanks will investigate
