[11:37] <mwheeler> Maybe
[11:37] <mwheeler> I kind of want to skip foundation though. I need to contact them
[11:38] <Darkside> hrm
[11:38] <Darkside> if you dont mind spending the money, going foundation first isnt that big of a deal
[11:39] <mwheeler> Yeah
[11:39] <Ian_> either way, it's a foot on the ladder :)
[11:40] <Darkside> cant do any digital stuff mind you
[11:40] <Darkside> but its gets you through the practical stuff
[11:40] <Ian_> Boooo!
[11:40] <Darkside> plus you can work satellites :D
[11:40] <Ian_> :)
[11:42] <Darkside> mwheeler: hah, my sonde glitched out
[11:43] <fsphil> no digital on foundation? that's an odd rule
[11:43] <Darkside> fsphil: australian foundation is a bit weird
[11:43] <mwheeler> I'll contact them and arrange the most I can do over the break

[11:45] <mwheeler> Haven't been checking github
[11:45] <Darkside> an altitude cap would be an easy one, and a good start
[11:45] <gonzo_> you should be able to skip the lectures and just do the assessment and exam for the foundation/internediate

[11:45] <Darkside> its all different here
[11:46] <Darkside> i would suggest mwheeler does the weekend course
[11:46] <Darkside> and then revises for the standard or advanced exam
[11:46] <mwheeler> Bringing gm as well
[11:47] <Darkside> damn straight
[11:47] <Darkside> :P
[11:47] <Darkside> its about bloody time he got his licence

[11:49] <Darkside> that gets a bit complicated
[11:49] <Darkside> suggest getting a VK3 callsign
[11:49] <Darkside> you need to supply a 'postal' address, which is made public, and an 'operating' address, whcih is not

[18:54] <PE2BZ> Hi Scott, I have not seen such info till now. Do you have any info about the internals of the LMS-6 ? What kind of processor, PLL or something like that ?
[18:55] <PE2BZ> There are occasionally LMS-6 sondes launched from somewhere the south end of the UK, but that´s about 5 times a year so in the EU there is not much info
[19:37] <K4KDR--Scott> PE2BZ: Thanks for the reply! I have a couple of recovered units here. I'd like to keep one in working order for testing but will take a closer look at the second unit to see what I can learn about the components. Here are some shots of the circuit board when I took the unit apart to remove the batteries: http://www.qsl.net/k/k4kdr//images/lms6/
[19:41] <PE2BZ> Hi Scott, 72F324 as processor, on the RS41 there is a 32F100 so that could give possibilities for programming. Do the dipswitches allow channel setting ?
[19:42] <PE2BZ> And a closeup of the part below the metal shield, which I assume contains the RF transmitting part.
[19:42] <PE2BZ> Can the images be shared with radiosonde groups in the EU ?
[19:48] <K4KDR--Scott> Exactly - here's the DIP switch label from the unit (sorry it's a little blurry): http://www.qsl.net/k/k4kdr//images/lms6/5.jpg
[19:48] <K4KDR--Scott> Sure, feel free to share the pics. Hopefully the NWS won't show up here wanting them back!
[19:59] <PE2BZ> Finders keepers ;-)
[20:00] <PE2BZ> 72F324 has SPI output. They could wire to the transmitter chip to control it, with a fixed table in the 72F324 for different frequencies.
[20:01] <PE2BZ> If you have any more pictures can you send me a link at pe2bz@pe2bz.nl ? I will be offline here for some days
[20:02] <K4KDR--Scott> Forgive me if that's Greek to me, but I can Google with the best of them so I'm grateful for your input and will see what I can learn!
[20:03] <K4KDR--Scott> Yes, I do intend to remove the shield over the transmitter so that'll at least let me know visually what else is there
[20:03] <PE2BZ> Perhaps when the people from the Darkside wake up they can tell if those also fly in Australia
[20:03] <PE2BZ> and perhaps someone is allready hacking the system over there
[20:04] <K4KDR--Scott> Since the PCB already has those edge connector contacts, I thought "how nice if I could just program in a different frequency range" (within the same general spectrum)
[20:06] <PE2BZ> I? afk for tonight. Not much info on the www so far.
