[08:58] <PE2BZ> And ? Any lower now ?
[08:59] <PE2BZ> G8KNN, Any info on the LoRa QRG and mode for FOX2 ?
[09:00] <dg2fs> I have made good experiences with reprogrammed rs41 sondes as backup trackers. Its tested hard- and software and its basically free since they regularly fall from the sky (If you are lucky). Its not as reliable as SMS-Trackers, but cheaper.

[09:01] <Darkside> what!
[09:02] <Darkside> SMS trackers are awful - with a decent radio trackt you can track throughout the entire flight
[09:02] <Darkside> with the 4FSK firmware on the RS41, the range is as far as the radio horizon
[09:03] <dg2fs> I mean you need someone in the area to listen to it.

[09:11] <daveake> get my email
[09:13] <dg2fs> On our BUBBLE-1 flight earlier this year the rs41 had an interessting side effect. I used an older version of DF8OE's software and forgot to disable 70 cm APRS (there is basically no 70 cm APRS infrastructure in Germany). Near the burst two APRS-packets were received, digipeated and i-gated in Milan.

[12:34] <nmcc> OGAT has landed and Hope Valley College was unapproved last night ...
[12:34] <Ian_> Also a good idea nmcc.
[12:35] <nmcc> About 90% cheaper for a proper full English ...
[12:38] <fsphil> focus seems to be getting worse daveake
[12:39] <daveake> hmm
[12:39] <daveake> Well there is another camera for video so hopefully that does better
[12:39] <nmcc> You could nip up in a Service Module?
[12:42] <nmcc> Right on the edge of my un-amplified W-50 - can hear Columbia but not Eagle
[12:42] <fsphil> I blame the cats
[12:42] <nmcc> fsphil: Probably a cat scan issue
[12:43] <fsphil> the camera has a cataract
[12:45] <Ron_G8FJG> I thought it was just me..
[12:45] <daveake> nmcc Eagle's 434 antenna is on the top of the payload with no ground plane
[12:47] <daveake> The focus was sent just beyond the capsule, so that would be tolerably sharp/blurry ... any closer and the background was too blurry
[12:47] <Ron_G8FJG> I see about 3db difference
[12:47] <daveake> As expected then :)
[12:47] <SpacenearUS> New vehicle on the map: 03SKY-ALFA - 12https://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=SKY-ALFA
[12:48] <fsphil> nice shot with the sun in the background
[12:49] <daveake> Struggling to get the uplink working ... have swapped that to a different gateway with Yagi but still not getting through

[12:50] <fsphil> switch to high gain
[12:50] <daveake> heh
[12:52] <Ron_G8FJG> something just wiped out my 869 band...
[12:52] <nmcc> Switch to Yagi is more consistent, now getting Eagle instead, but they appear to be 2 or 3 kHz apart
[12:53] <daveake> Yeah I wasn't sure about flying those 2 on the same frequency ... if they drift too far apart then the AFC will latch to one and lose the other
[12:54] <Ron_G8FJG> plonked my rx freq in the middle and switched afc off..
[12:54] <daveake> :)
[12:54] <daveake> btw I did think of waiting till 2:32pm to launch which is the Apollo 11 launch time
[12:54] <nmcc> packets log show Columbia at 272 and Eagle at 276
[12:54] <daveake> ta

[12:55] <daveake> Anyone else have their dash map think it's burst (it hasn't) ?
[12:55] <daveake> If so reload
[12:56] <nmcc> Turned off AFC, retuned to 273, it retuned to 274.9, now getting both with AFC off
[12:56] <daveake> great
[12:56] <nmcc> And no longer getting a string of CRC failures which I guess was the other signal not quite making it
[12:58] <nmcc> The auto-rotator is shagged out from running up & down the stairs but at least three cats helped (watch)
[12:58] <fsphil> judging
[13:00] <nmcc> Very happy with new antenna array - and bonus, no comments from the neighbours yet
[13:02] <nmcc> daveake: interesting watching your float - yesterday mine was much more positive than that but still fell short by 1m/s
[13:03] <daveake> float ?
[13:04] <nmcc> Neck lift
[13:04] <daveake> ah ok
[13:05] <nmcc> My 2nd go on H2 so may need to reweigh filler and check calcs etc
[13:05] <nmcc> Also first solo launch - much more peaceful
[13:06] <daveake> Handy hint: Put the filler and bottle on scales, switch them on and zero, then lift the filler/bottle as if the balloon lifted them
[13:06] <daveake> Neck lift = minus whatever the scales show

[13:12] <PD3T> Is the reported frequency correct for pheonix2 on 434.505 ?
[13:12] <fsphil> the dashboard isn't getting any updates
[13:12] <daveake> yeah odd
[13:13] <fsphil> ah there it goes
[13:13] <daveake> ooer caught up
[13:13] <daveake> odd
[13:13] <daveake> Says it's getting a lot of empty requests
[13:13] <fsphil> don't tell me the lag is contagious
[13:13] <nmcc> daveake: yup, did that, just may have got the readings wrong - need to review the whole lot really
[13:14] <daveake> Might restart it
[13:14] <daveake> restarted
[13:16] <Ron_G8FJG> PD3T I think it was...down now? data about an hour lag
[13:16] <fsphil> it's that bad?
[13:16] <dbrooke> yes, landed at 13:06 UTC
[13:16] <dbrooke> $$X2,997,13:06:14,52.45687,0.34439,67,20,3,2.83,6D84*CF1A
[13:17] <fsphil> wow
[13:17] <fsphil> I've only seen it about 6 minutes out before
[13:18] <daveake> yeah 30 mins+ quite common
[13:18] <Darkside> so the lag this time is due to the db compact going on
[13:18] <Darkside> not necessarily from the sondes
[13:18] <PD3T> thnks ;)
[13:18] <Darkside> in fact we have throttled the sonde uploads waaay back
[13:18] <PD3T> that's why my spectrum is super clean ;)
[13:18] <daveake> I shall translate for Darkside: "Not my fault this time"
[13:18] <Darkside> well it kind of is
[13:18] <daveake> :)
[13:19] <Darkside> the DB compact was started because adam cleaned out all the old sonde data
[13:19] <nmcc> But surely no maintenance should be scheduled when Dave is flying?
[13:19] <Darkside> kind of hard to stop it once its started it seems
[13:20] <nmcc> Given the general uniformity of most of the telemetry, a NoSQL database may need designing out - key values can be done in SQL with some element of efficiency (but not WordPress) for custom fields
[13:21] <Darkside> interestingly there is a postgres layer between the online tracker and the habitat backend
[13:21] <Darkside> im not really sure how it works
[13:21] <Darkside> rgp would know
[13:22] <daveake> Server is telling me it's getting lots and lots of empty messages wonder if a bot has found it :/
[13:22] <daveake> Prolly a bug of mind tbh
[13:22] <daveake> mine
[13:23] <daveake> They seem to come in a rush then stop

[13:25] <daveake> Thought of having a separate habhub install for the Sondes ?
[13:25] <Darkside> however given how long the last db compact took, there's no telling what'll happen this time
[13:25] <Darkside> daveake: yeah definitely
[13:26] <Darkside> daveake: while habitat would probably be possible to clone, the interfaces between it and the tracker are not well documented
[13:26] <daveake> Presumably the payload doc and related teleme can be auto deleted after a few days say
[13:26] <Darkside> totally
[13:26] <Darkside> i was going to say maybe 1 week
[13:26] RocketBoy (~steverand@213.205.240.61) left irc: Client Quit
[13:26] <daveake> yeah
[13:27] <Darkside> but yes, the major issues were due to the large number of payload docs added
[13:27] <Darkside> they have all been removed now
[13:28] <Darkside> well, almost all
[13:28] <Darkside> Found 857 radiosonde payload documents (out of 9736 total).

[13:37] <daveake> Shame about the uplink, but the ones on-board should be good
[13:37] <fsphil> it looks like the focus improved a bit higher up
[13:37] <MedadR> By any chance is the lunar module designed to seperate and land seperately?
[13:38] <daveake> Heh. I did think about that ....
[13:38] <daveake> by then it was all glued together
