[02:19] <nickoe> Hello. Is there some guidance on what frequencyes for a baloon to tx telemetry? Using a custom protocol on UHF
[02:40] <Darkside> fsphil: is that an autosonde launch station?
[02:41] <Darkside> nickoe: depends, if you have an amateur licence and it's not a commercial launch, then you could use the amateur 70cm band
[02:41] <Darkside> otherwise you'll need to use whatever ISM band is available in your country
[02:41] <Darkside> (often ~434 mhz)
[02:44] <nickoe> Darkside: yes, we have amateur licenses, but when I look at the AARL bandplan reccomendation http://www.arrl.org/band-plan each band is still grouped into smaller chunks for a purpose. But where does balooning fit?
[02:44] <nickoe> 433.00-435.00 Auxiliary/repeater links ?
[02:44] <Darkside> are you in the US?
[02:48] <nickoe> Darkside: No, denmark.
[02:49] <nickoe> I was just wondering if there was a commonly used frequency range used for this.
[02:49] <Darkside> in which case the ARRL band plans don't apply
[02:49] <Darkside> well the most common frequency for things like HAB RTTY is 434.650 MHz
[02:50] <Darkside> but you should check and make sure that frequency isnt used by services in your vicinity
[02:51] <nickoe> Yea, I think it should be good. But I will recheck later. It is getting late here.
[02:51] <Darkside> i bet

[09:19] <fsphil> Darkside: yeah it's an automated site
[09:20] <Darkside> fsphil: ok, which means its using the same parachute-in-balloon that the site in mt gambier uses
[09:20] <Darkside> i've seen those parachutes do weird things
[09:21] <Darkside> they seem to twist up, then unfurl, resulting in weird descent rate variations
[09:21] <fsphil> the one i found def. had the chute in the balloon
[09:22] <fsphil> and a neat little valve filler in the neck
[09:22] <Darkside> yep
[09:24] <Darkside> so yeah, the last sonde i chased in mt gambier landed at 3.5ms
[09:24] <Darkside> and it was descending at that kind of rate from around 8 km altitude
[09:24] <Darkside> not quite what i expected

[09:54] <fsphil> the burst altitudes seem to be a bit more variable than they used to be
[09:56] <Darkside> all we can really do is keep on monitoring whats going on
[09:56] <Darkside> i'm interested to see what happens when they switch over to RS41s here at the local manned site
[09:56] <Darkside> like, do they keep using the radar reflectors they've been using as drogues
[09:56] <Darkside> or are they going to fly without a parachute altogether
[10:00] <Darkside> we're expecting the switch to RS41s here in Adelaide 'any day now'

[13:24] <fsphil> I've tried powering up my "new" RG41-SG sonde. it's just flashing an error LED. might've been sitting in the snow for too long :)
[13:25] <chris_99> is there open source software to decode the signal from those radio sonde thingies out of interest?
[13:26] <fsphil> yeah, https://github.com/projecthorus/radiosonde_auto_rx
[13:27] <chris_99> ooh neat cheers
[13:27] <fsphil> can be a bit ackward to get going but it works well
[13:28] <chris_99> nice, i had some of the polystyrene sondes a while ago, i may still have one left possibly, they had funny batteries that you dip in water iirc
[13:30] Nick change: _Matthias -> Matthias
[13:32] <fsphil> yeah they changed the model not too long ago
[13:33] <fsphil> these new ones have two AA energizer lithiums
[13:33] <chris_99> ahh
[13:33] <fsphil> nice case design too
[13:34] <fsphil> it is transmitting something despite the error
[13:35] <fsphil> looks like the radio module is a transceiver. interesting
[13:36] <fsphil> gps is working
[13:36] <fsphil> temperature is accurate
[13:36] <fsphil> neat
[13:39] <fsphil> right, better not leave it transmitting on sonde frequencies :)
