[19:14] <jacob8> does anyone know where to find sma connectors that fit stripboard? I can only find PCB ones and the legs are too big

[19:21] <mattbrejza> just drill the stripboard a bit larger
[19:31] <jacob8> ah is that it...thanks!
[19:31] <jacob8> I tried filing down the legs which didn't really work
[19:31] <jacob8> hopefully the connector will still work
[19:36] <Ian_> :) look at problem and take the simpler route, with the drill bit or rat tail file :)

[19:58] <nigle> Stripboard and RF are more than a little bit incompatible, soldering an SMA pigtail directly to the pins of whatever RF module you are using is a much better idea.

[20:50] <Mallangong> Hello, my son has reminded me that I said we could look at putting a HAB up over a year ago now. I have been looking over the process again. Tracking is the one area which I am a bit uncomfortable about. As this is possibly a one off the simple (and cheaper?) approach of an SMS/SPOT combination appeals, however I can't also help thinking we would get more out of full tracking (and reduce the risk of losing it).
[20:52] <Mallangong> I would be grateful for any advice on which solution I should go towards. On the "full" tracking side I looked at Habduino or Pi in the Sky but haven't yet worked out the difference.
[20:57] <mfa298> SMS probably isn't worth considering, the general feeling is that it's no more than 50% successful, so chances of recovery that way are pretty slim.
[20:58] <mfa298> Mobile networks are generally aimed at populated places for devices a meter or more above the ground, you should be aiming to land away from populated areas and hopefully have the payload land on the ground.
[20:59] <mfa298> Most here would recommend some sort of radio tracker, although what's best may depend on where in the world you are and what you want it to do.
[21:02] <Mallangong> Thanks, mfa298. We are in the UK (Bedfordshire/Cambs border)
[21:03] <mfa298> the big thing PITS might give you over Habduino is being able to send back images during the flight.
[21:04] <mfa298> as a starting point you could also try trackign other peoples flights and maybe see if you can attend someone elses launch if there's one suitably local.
[21:05] <mfa298> it's a good way to get started and learn soem of the parts without the pressure of having to chase/recover.

[22:15] <Laurenceb_> I'd sort of disagree
[22:16] <Laurenceb_> you can get SMS between ~50m and ~1km altitude pretty much anywhere over uk
[22:16] <Laurenceb_> but I'd still go with radio
[22:16] <Laurenceb_> its just more reliable
