[13:17] <day> all heat guided missiles appear to have actively cooled sensors, while normal thermal cameras do not. why is that? are they fundamentally different? or is it done to simply increase contrast?
[13:19] <chris_99> maybe it's done for the same reason sensors used in astronomy are cooled, to reduce noise afaik
[13:20] <edmoore> ^
[13:20] <bozzy> New to this, anyone got 2 mins to answer a few questions please?
[13:24] <edmoore> bozzy: welcome. irc etiquette is not to ask to ask a question and make someone contract to answer the q before they know what it is
[13:24] <edmoore> instead, just ask and someone will answer it if they can and want to
[13:25] <bozzy> As I say, new to this, just watching a balloon on habhut that is near to me (SITS-4). How would I find what frequency it is transmitting on?
[13:34] <michal_f> !flights
[13:34] <SpacenearUS> 03michal_f: Current flights: 03SP5NVX RTTY APRS_70cm 10(0c13)
[13:34] <mfa298> normally you might find details on the map or the mailing list https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ukhas
[13:34] <mfa298> ... but SITS don't tend to announce anything to anyone
[13:36] <mfa298> you might find something between 434.000 and 434.600 probably either rtty or Lora
[13:36] <bozzy> FM, USB or LSB?
[13:37] <mfa298> USB for rtty
[13:39] <bozzy> Is "SITS" and abreviation for something, cannot find any mention of them on Google
[13:40] <day> chris_99: yeah thats what i thought too. but the contrast is already skyhigh, so it shouldnt really be necessary for that purpose alone. even "stealth" planes light up like a christmas tree
[13:43] <mfa298> bozzy: Sent Into Space - they're a commercial thing using the community developed stuff
[13:46] <bozzy> Understand now, thanks. That balloon is coming down about 5 miles away from me.
[13:51] <PE2BZ> sits4 434.4625
[13:52] <PE2BZ> sits3 434.3625
[13:53] <PE2BZ> there is a trend in that, sits2 is at 434.2625 :-)
[13:53] <Ian_> SiTS = Sent into Space.
[13:53] <bozzy> Thanks, I am picking up something on 434.4625 now
[13:54] <Ian_> it wouldn't surprise me if having sussed a correlation between SiTS # and frequency, that they might just change things . . .
[13:54] <Ian_> :)
[13:57] <PE2BZ> It´s been this way for a year now and I think they won´t confuse themselves... That said, I have to go back to work to fix a gate after a truck pushed the door open a bit....

[14:01] <bozzy> Signal dropped now, wasn't able to make any sence of RTTY using multipsk
[14:03] <PE2BZ> bozzy what altitude was reported on the map ?
[14:04] <bozzy> Currently, 1,854M, but that was 12 mins ago
[14:05] <bozzy> max was 32,972M
[14:05] <PE2BZ> SITS payloads tend to use the default setting for the trackers to 300 bd 600 hz shift 8n2 and you would need for example DL-FLDIGi in HAB mode to decode AND get on the map. Decoding with multipsk should work with the given parameter but you would not appear on the map with that software
[14:05] <PE2BZ> Now I am off to work. Back later
[14:06] <bozzy> Thanks for the tip, I'll have a look at FLDIGi

[15:26] <groit> hi
[15:27] <groit> is there a linux version of SDR# software for windows?
[15:27] <bozzy> Linux for Windows?
[15:27] <groit> recently moved to Linux, and I'm stuck as there's no Linux version of SDR#.
[15:28] <michal_f> groit: no
[15:28] <michal_f> you can try running it under mono, but that's a miserable experience
[15:28] <craag> groit: try gqrx
[15:28] <craag> it's not quite the same - but works for most things.
[15:32] <groit> craag: how about CubicSDR, is it smth simillar as well?
[15:33] <SpacenearUS> New vehicle on the map: 03KK6UUQ-2 - 12https://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=KK6UUQ-2
[15:33] <craag> I've not tried anything but gqrx to be honest.
[15:55] <russss> cubicsdr is nice
[16:04] <PE2BZ> cubicsdr is more complex at gqrx
