[08:41] <Adrian_URJC> Hi all
[08:41] <fsphil> morning
[08:42] <Adrian_URJC> I will launch a HAB this sunday and i have a critical question
[08:43] <Adrian_URJC> how can i receive SSDV images using RTTY or LoRa?
[08:43] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> both programs save the jpg files locally as well as sending to the server
[08:44] <fsphil> not the best question to have 3 days before a launch
[08:44] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> have you not used it before?
[08:45] <PE2BZ> it´s a critical question indeed. Do you have ANY radio receiving equipment / experience ?
[08:45] <craag> what transmitter and receiver do you have Adrian_URJC ?
[08:46] <Adrian_URJC> no, but i have been testing both programs for some weeks and i understand it
[08:46] <fsphil> there are some test images coming through to https://ssdv.habhub.org/ , are any of these yours?
[08:46] <SpacenearUS> New vehicle on the map: 03KD2EAT-7 - 12https://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=KD2EAT-7
[08:48] <Adrian_URJC> transmitter: Raspberry Pi zero receiver: Yagi aerial + SDR +laptop
[08:48] <Adrian_URJC> i can decode the telemetry message
[08:49] <Adrian_URJC> but i cant receive images
[08:49] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> Who's code are you using ? dl-fldigi and LoRa Gateway do it automaticlly once configured.
[08:50] <Adrian_URJC> right now i am using dl-fldigi
[08:51] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> well open the SDDV window and check the config for the right SSDV url to send the data to
[08:51] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> dl-fldigi is View|SSDV Rx
[08:54] <Adrian_URJC> i opened the window , but i cant see a image there
[08:55] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> How do you know your receiving an image ? It should say on the status line
[08:56] <PE2BZ> Can you paste pisky.txt somewhere ? To check if RTTY SSDV is enabled ?
[08:58] <Adrian_URJC> where is the status line?
[08:58] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> At the very bottom of the screen where it says the data has been sent to server etc
[08:59] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> dl-fldigi config http://360.g8dhe.net/HAB_Flights/index.php?ind=4
[08:59] <daveake> Also the lime green bar should say "packet x of image y" or something like that
[08:59] <daveake> http://www.pi-in-the-sky.com/data/uploads/tracking/dl4.jpg
[09:00] <daveake> All this assumes of course that you're actually transmitting images
[09:06] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> You currently failing to parse in the logtail
[09:07] <Adrian_URJC> i cant find RTTY SSDV in the pisky.txt file
[09:09] <SpacenearUS> New position from 03u3s10 after 0313 hours silence - 12https://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=u3s10
[09:09] <daveake> The default file will send SSDV, assuming you've followed the installation instructions (i.e. enabled the camera, installed SSDV)
[09:10] <daveake> And if you've changed it, the info page on what the settings do is http://www.pi-in-the-sky.com/index.php?id=configuration
[09:10] <Adrian_URJC> i bougth the Raspberry PI Zero with the micro SD card burned with all the programs
[09:11] <daveake> Then, unless you changed something, it sends SSDV
[09:11] <daveake> assuming ofc camera correctly connected
[09:13] <PE2BZ> Adrian is the telemetry you can decode a continuous transmission or are there breaks between the decodes ?
[09:14] <Adrian_URJC> i decode a continuous transmission
[09:14] <PE2BZ> image_packets=4 in the configuration daveake posted sets for 4 image packets and 1 telemetry packet repeating. If you telemtry is continuous transmitted the problem has to be in the camera (hardware, settings, setup)
[09:15] <PE2BZ> Are you in contact with the pi at the moment ? By ssh or something ?
[09:15] <PE2BZ> And what camera is used ?
[09:16] <Adrian_URJC> No
[09:16] <Adrian_URJC> Raspberry Pi camera V2.1
[09:16] <daveake> Does the camera LED come on periodically ?
[09:16] <Adrian_URJC> no
[09:17] <daveake> Not sure but I think the LED got removed when they did the Sony cam
[09:17] <daveake> Anyhoo what you need to do is login to the pi and try to take a picture manually
[09:18] <PE2BZ> Could the camera be wired ¨reversed¨ that means the isolation is on the contact side ?
[09:18] <PE2BZ> On either the PI or the camera end ?
[09:18] <daveake> that would certainly do it
[09:19] Action: PE2BZ is curious who sells PI´s with an SD card setup for Hab flights. Would it have a large readme ?
[09:20] <Adrian_URJC> the camera is well conected
[09:21] <Adrian_URJC> i will try to take a picture manually
[09:21] <PE2BZ> ok
[09:21] <daveake> Do what I said; try and take a photo manually
[09:21] <PE2BZ> And keep smiling when taking the picture ;-)
[09:21] <Adrian_URJC> Ok, thank you
[09:21] <daveake> And then check free space on the SD card

[09:33] <Ron_g8fjg> morning all...been reading the logs...dl-fldigi...I run two versions here, both save to designated file..but v 3.23.12 doesn't display any picture via View/SSDV RX..never has..everything else works fine
[09:35] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> Yes the latest version that does the BPG (?) code has problems with othe rimages and saving them
[09:36] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> I suspect the calls to the jpg encoding have been blocked
[09:36] <Ron_g8fjg> thats fine, just not me then!.
[09:37] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> Nope its all of us ;-)
[09:41] pb0ahx (~pb0ahx@53540677.cm-6-5a.dynamic.ziggo.nl) joined #highaltitude.
[09:42] <Ron_g8fjg> here's a hesitant question...if I direct both decodes from the two dlfldigi versions to the same location , what happens? two images? a composite ? a clash of ideals!
[09:43] <fsphil> same file location or server?
[09:44] <Ian_> That's one for fsphil I suspect.
[09:45] <Ron_g8fjg> same file
[09:48] <Ron_g8fjg> sending to the server is fine, I use different operator ids for the two versions ( v and v1)
[09:48] <Ron_g8fjg> afk15 mins
[09:50] <PE2BZ> I get 2 or 3 images in the folder with different names (date time format) and running 2 instances from an SDR gives 1 or 2 seconds delay, which I find back in the filenames
[09:51] <fsphil> the file will be whatever the last instance wrote it
[09:51] <fsphil> so if it's the same source and they are decoding the same, it'll probably be fine

[10:12] <gonzo_> it's a short and steep learning curve
[10:13] <gonzo_> my daughetr did the same on a loght bulb, when she was small. Had a weekend with a large blister on end of finger
[10:13] <Ron_g8fjg> only been bitten twice...
[10:13] <gonzo_> and a lesson learned
[10:13] <PE2BZ> Why do kids fingers even fit in E14 fittings. Mine was hurt once also....
[10:14] <gonzo_> this was an incanescent 60W in a lamp. So got a burn rather thjan a bite
[10:15] <gonzo_> I'm supprised that those style of lamp fittimgs were not phased out years ago
[10:15] <PE2BZ> Mine was at centerparcs. would not have us turn out the light. So he covered the lamp with his teddy bear. Few minutes later he called us, The bear was melting....

[10:21] <gonzo_> lesson learned and have had very few bites since then
[10:22] <PE2BZ> I fixed my first transistor radio at age of 11. Put my finger on each part and moved it back and forth. One resistor was actually broken. My dad could not believe it. Called it luck ;-) A year later I tried the same on a tube radio. Man, did that hurt....

[11:32] <Darkside> ok its neck and neck at the moment
[11:33] <gonzo_> ok, just a bit of wire then, and a vauge gp
[11:33] <Darkside> yeah
[11:33] <gonzo_> like hearing horse racing commentry
[11:34] <Darkside> so the main aim tonight is to see how the cross dipole compares to the vertical when the payload is at high elevation angles
[11:34] <Darkside> so tim eto get moving to somewhere directly under the predicted flight path
[11:35] <Darkside> bbl
[11:55] <Darkside> oh good
[11:55] <Darkside> i am alive
[11:55] <Darkside> that road was narrow, winding, dirt, single lane
[11:55] <Darkside> bumpy as hell
[11:56] <Darkside> i am amased i still have all the bits of my antenna
[11:56] <Darkside> also at 20 degrees elevation this turnstile is TERRIBLE
[12:02] <Darkside> welp
[12:02] <Darkside> wind models are shit tonight

[12:33] <fsphil> you chasing?
[12:33] <Darkside> not sure if ill follow it to landing
[12:33] <Darkside> but the intent here is to check antenna performance at high elevations
[12:33] <Darkside> and the cross dipole is winning at th emoment
[12:34] <Darkside> almost 80 degrees elevation now
[12:36] <Darkside> so im parked on the side of a road on a hill
[12:36] <Darkside> about 100m away from a big commercial repeater site
[12:36] <Darkside> the vertical gets absolutely slammed

[12:42] <Darkside> 84 degrees elevation!
[12:42] <Darkside> vertical = crap, xpol = awesome
[12:43] <Darkside> i wish this thing would hurry up and burst though
[12:43] <Darkside> i wantto go home
[12:47] <PE2BZ> Is it not allowed to help it burst ? Needs good aiming though :-)
[12:49] <Darkside> burst!

[13:08] <PE2BZ> The narrow red lines when I decode 300 bd rtty are best at the left side for the right yellow carrier and at the right side for the left yellow carrier. Does my description make sense ?
[13:08] <SNBlair> I am not currently testing....but what would that do? What is the purpose of the shift control?
[13:08] <daveake> It's in the manwell see http://www.pi-in-the-sky.com/index.php?id=decoding-with-dl-fldigi
[13:09] <daveake> It tells dl-fldigi what part of the signal to listen to
[13:09] <daveake> and you missed
[13:09] <SNBlair> yes.... I know what that means. Ill try out as soon a I can

[13:09] <PE2BZ> That´s where I adjust the shift to at 300 bd signals

[13:14] <Ron_g8fjg> now stop..
[13:18] <Darkside> lol
[13:18] <Darkside> and i dont have my R10 with me
[13:18] <Darkside> goddamnit
[13:18] <SNBlair> where do I find me squelch.....ooh er
[13:18] <Ron_g8fjg> do you need a torch?
[13:18] <Ron_g8fjg> its in the sandy bit
[13:19] <SNBlair> in rhyming slang that would be 'Raquel' (i.e. Raquel Welch!)
[13:20] <Ron_g8fjg> "bottom" right green square
[13:27] <Darkside> ok, not recovering this one
[13:27] <gonzo_> issues Darkside ?
[13:28] <Darkside> well its in someones property
[13:28] <gonzo_> are they not friendly?
[13:28] <Darkside> and its a BOM sonde, so i dont really need to recover it
[13:28] <Darkside> A) no R10, so cant DF
[13:28] <Darkside> b) those coordinates are only good to maybe 100m
[13:28] <Darkside> c) couldnt see it when i went for a walk
[13:29] <gonzo_> it seems to be holding quite a steady posn. Are the maps/google earth images not registered accuratly?
[13:30] <Darkside> the position reported by those sondes is not that good
[13:30] <Darkside> anyway, the owner drove in
[13:30] <Darkside> and its 11pm here
[13:30] <Darkside> so im not that keen on going in to recover it
[13:31] <gonzo_> you got what you wanted from it
[13:32] <Darkside> oh now thats interesting
[13:32] <Darkside> what im seeing in my car and what i see on the map are diferent
[13:32] <Darkside> thats ephemeris differences
[13:37] <Darkside> veeery interesting
[13:38] <Darkside> so sondemonitor and the RS software are reporting different positions
[13:39] <Darkside> 300m difference
[13:39] <Darkside> very interesting
[13:39] <Darkside> i wonder which is correct...
[13:39] <gonzo_> do these newer sondes still need the ephermeris correcting externally? Or do they tx down a fully calced posn?
[13:40] <Darkside> ephemeris external
[13:40] <Darkside> this is not a RS41
[13:40] <Darkside> this is a RS92
[13:40] <Darkside> hence these annoyances
[13:40] <Darkside> once they fly teh RS41s this wont be a problem
[13:40] <Darkside> anyway
[13:40] <Darkside> i need to get going hoe

[13:45] <Darkside> so the location on aprs.fi is correct
[13:45] <Darkside> and on the tracker
[13:46] <Darkside> i can actually see the grreen LED on the payload from the road
[13:46] <Darkside> but its a long way in, and theres electric fences
[13:46] <PE2BZ> Trust the RS software more than the SM !
[13:46] <Darkside> yeah sounds like it!
[13:46] <Darkside> which is a bit scary, eh

[13:46] <Darkside> veeeery interesting result

[14:32] <Darkside> RS was definitely right
[14:32] <Darkside> and both RS and sondemonitor were using the same ephemeris data
[14:32] <PE2BZ> ¨we¨ have a tool over here to compensate the SM ´s bad behaviour. Would you be interested ?
[14:33] <PE2BZ> You can run it afterwards and see the corrected GPS

[14:34] <Darkside> ill be writing somethign to connect RS into my mapping software
[14:35] <Darkside> all these problems will go away one they start launching RS41s of course
[14:35] <Darkside> its just these silly RS92s with the half-a-GPS
[14:36] <Darkside> PE2BZ: i had RS running in my car during the flight. I forked it and wrote some automation stuff: https://github.com/darksidelemm/RS/tree/master/auto_rx
[14:36] <Darkside> so that was running my car on a RPi2 the entire time. It's just it doesnt talk to any of the mapping stuff.
[14:37] <Darkside> but I can fix that :-)
[14:38] <Darkside> just a matter of having it spit the telemetry in teh right format to a UDP port on the mapping machine
[14:42] <gonzo_> why do they have the 'half a gps'? Was it an attempt to keep processing and power reqs down to a min, long long ago???
[14:46] <kokey> perhaps they thought there was only one hemisphere that mattered
