[11:25] <craag> Nvm, from the pits code I believe the answer is ~2s :)
[11:31] <daveake> More like 15 I thought ....
[11:31] <craag> Was looking at the binary packet
[11:31] <daveake> ah right :)
[11:32] <craag> I assumed that was supported in the gateway, haven't checked..
[11:32] <daveake> erm not sure might be commented out atm
[11:32] <craag> I'll look
[11:33] <daveake> 62 bytes 14 seconds
[11:34] <craag> hmm ok you've got the binary struct defined in the gateway but no parsing code :P
[11:34] <craag> thanks
[11:35] <craag> Did you have binary implemented at some point or does this need code written? I remember something about reconstructing a ukhas sentence and then uploading that to habitat as a stopgap.
[11:36] <craag> might have been matt's stuff..
[11:38] <mattbrejza> tahts what i did
[11:38] <mattbrejza> for msgpack
[11:38] <craag> ah yes
[11:38] <craag> which I did have working on the pi gateway at some point didn't I?
[11:39] <mattbrejza> i think its in my fork
[11:39] <craag> Ah you did: ProcessTelemetryMessage
[11:39] <craag> https://github.com/suspaceflight/lora-gateway
[11:47] <craag> Thanks both.
[11:48] <Darkside> i just convert back to a ascii sentence in my stuff...
[11:48] <Darkside> was easier
[11:49] <craag> Yep that's what matt did for habpack too

[15:53] hopej (~AndChat60@94.197.120.196.threembb.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[15:56] <hopej> So, possibly silly question. But is it possible to build a LoRa tracker with an Arduino instead of a pi?
[15:57] <fsphil> yes
[15:57] OLHZN (~tcarissim@rrcs-24-105-183-114.nys.biz.rr.com) joined #highaltitude.
[15:58] <fsphil> unless your doing live images
[15:58] <daveake> Yes, not hard. Getting said Arduino online iis more tricky than with a Pi, so if you want it to upload to habhub then a Pi is a better bet.
[15:58] <fsphil> in which case still yes, but harder
[15:58] <daveake> fsphil: My PC program that receives from an Arduino also does the SSDV upload
[15:59] <daveake> oh sorry I'm talking crap
[15:59] <daveake> tracker = flying thing
[15:59] <daveake> So as fsphil said :)
[15:59] <fsphil> to be fair, tracker could mean either
[15:59] <fsphil> ground station or payload hopej?
[16:00] <daveake> yeah I don't usually make that mistake :)
[16:00] <Ian_> It's an unfortunate fact that the word tracker is used for both the airborne package and the ground station.
[16:00] <daveake> it is
[16:00] <daveake> need a new word
[16:00] <craag> receiver
[16:00] <daveake> never catch on
[16:00] <craag> :P
[16:01] <daveake> Anyway
[16:01] <daveake> Don't you mean reciever ?
[16:01] <craag> oh yes sorry new brexit spelling
[16:01] <daveake> heh
[16:01] <mfa298> but then some of daveake's flying things are also receivers
[16:03] <hopej> Payload, so doesn't meet to get online.
[16:04] <daveake> So yes, not hard with an Arduino. Best to be a 3.3V one to match the LoRa signal levels.
[16:04] <daveake> Mini Pro 3.3V is ideal
[16:08] <hopej> Cool, thabks. Want to have a really light weight tracker for some practice flights.
[16:09] <hopej> Would 2AA batteries be sufficient for power?
[16:10] <hopej> Only 3v not 3.3
[16:12] <daveake> Dunno. iirc the Mini Pro works down to a fairly low voltage, but the LoRa may well give up first. Would need testing.
[16:12] <craag> lora is fine down to that voltage at low power iirc, but yes, test!
[16:15] <hopej> Ok thanks. May need more help when it comes to coding!
[16:17] <Ian_> Ultimate Lithium AA batteries of course.

[20:03] <Guest92078> Hi I have a raspberry PITS and the cable connecting the battery back to the PITS header has half come out of the connector.
[20:04] <Guest92078> Could someone tell me what cable to replace it with/whether I can just solder the wire back in?
[20:04] <Guest92078> Or just tell me what the connector for power on the PITS board is called?
[20:05] <daveake> ping Upu
[20:06] <Guest92078> (You know the 2 pin white power connector that clips on if you need any more clarity)
[20:08] <Upu> Yo
[20:08] <Upu> Mail me a picture and your order number pls
[20:09] <Upu> I'll send a replacement tommorrow

[20:24] <Alex____> Hi, I'm new to using dl-fldigi and I was wondering if anyone would mind giving a quick overview of what some of the most important buttons do? Or if there's an online guide that I could look at? Thanks.

[21:22] <daveake> Falcon 9 in 3 mins (no not the Heavy one) http://www.spacex.com/webcast
[21:24] <dbrooke> thanks for reminder, just in time ...

[21:35] <daveake> no stage-1 recovery this time :(
[21:41] <murb> they did everything but recover it, maybe they have no room for more?
[21:42] <SpeedEvil> Seems likely.

[21:48] <dbrooke> or maybe not enough fuel to get back to land and not worth deploying a drone ship?

[21:56] <Mike-SA6BSS|2> Falcon 9’s first stage for the GovSat-1 mission previously supported the NROL-76 mission from LC-39A in May 2017
[21:56] <kc2pit> I saw a mention that Of Course I Still Love You would have trouble catching this booster, unloading it, and getting back out in time for the Falcon Heavy launch.
[21:56] <Mike-SA6BSS|2> its already recycled once :)
[21:57] <kc2pit> And I don't think they're trying to reuse these block 3s that much, so it wouldn't have much value except as a practice landing.
[22:05] <SpeedEvil> Indeed.
[22:05] <SpeedEvil> FH is the likely reason, though some have speculated they're trying out very high thrust landings
[22:05] <murb> kc2pit: well if there ever is a Falcon heavy launch...
[22:05] <murb> always seem to be more delays.
[22:05] <SpeedEvil> Three engine, not one landing burn.
[22:06] <SpeedEvil> 'next month' seems not too unlikely at this point - especially if there is no government shutdown.
[22:14] <murb> always next month :)
[22:15] <fsphil> if I was paying for it, I wouldn't want them to rush it :)
[22:15] <SpeedEvil> I do wish they'd done more than the car for a test payload.
[22:17] <daveake> I think the car needs a pilot
[22:18] <daveake> with orange hair
[22:18] <SpeedEvil> i was more thinking of an inch thick large can with industrial robot arms inside to screw with assembling stuff, for example.
[22:20] <fsphil> or a space time capsule
[22:20] <fsphil> some cool stuff for future generations to look through when they catch up with it
