[08:30] <PE2BZ> Good morning all
[08:30] <PE2BZ> Darkside, are you available for a short question ?
[08:30] <Darkside> i am
[08:31] <PE2BZ> Thanks :-) I used this line for 4fsk payload #define BINARY_PAYLOAD_ID 06 // Payload ID for use in Binary packets
[08:32] <PE2BZ> So I added a 0 before the 6 (to much messing around with the wspr flight ID I guess) could that be the reason that 4fsk is not decoded by any listener including me ?
[08:32] <Darkside> hrm
[08:32] <Darkside> its interepreted as an int, so i'd be surprised if that was the case
[08:33] <PE2BZ> Signal appears nicely in the waterfall, but no SNR response, nothing in the decoded string field...
[08:34] <bertrik> maybe the 0 causes it to be interpreted as octal?
[08:34] <Darkside> no
[08:34] <Darkside> SNR is only updated when a packet is received i think

[08:35] <SpacenearUS> New vehicle on the map: 03RANGER1 - 12https://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=RANGER1
[08:35] <Darkside> thrt fact that nothing decodes is bad
[08:35] <Darkside> that suggests something else is breaking badly
[08:36] <Darkside> does changing it back to just a 6 work?
[08:36] <bertrik> even in octal, 06 is still 6 (decimal)
[08:36] <PE2BZ> Darkside this one is flying allready....
[08:37] <PE2BZ> So I have to program another one to check that, but that will be after this flight.
[08:38] <Darkside> you didn't test decoding before you launched?
[08:40] <PE2BZ> I did not test the 4fsk part, I relied on the GPS fix in fldigi and released it.
[08:40] <PE2BZ> And my memory says that I tested the payload when I programmed it last week and had it decoded on 4fsk but my memory is not completely reliable....
[08:47] <Darkside> can youg et me an audio recording please
[08:47] <PE2BZ> I will
[08:48] <PE2BZ> the freedv with another tracker still works ok
[08:49] <PE2BZ> one minute enough, or preferred more ?
[08:51] <Darkside> one minute is fine
[08:51] <Darkside> i just want to see what the modem is doing

[08:56] <PE2BZ> http://gofile.me/35mDS/R4Mh3AtjU from my synology nas
[08:59] <Darkside> ok
[09:08] <Darkside> hmm
[09:08] <Darkside> frequency estimation seems to be OK
[09:09] <Darkside> not sure why it isnt finding packets..
[09:10] <PE2BZ> Just reflashed another RS41, with setting 6 and also no decoding. I am going to remove all 4fsk masters from my system and get a new one. Something´s broken...
[09:10] <Darkside> no its not working here
[09:10] <Darkside> oh
[09:10] <Darkside> well maybe start from scratch on the RS41HUP
[09:10] <Darkside> you might have bumped something
[09:11] <Darkside> but yeah, thats definitely not decoding here
[09:11] <Darkside> i should note that i usually dont use interleaved RTTY and MFSK - i usually just do continuous MFSK
[09:12] <Darkside> if you leave gaps there isnt much time for the modem to sync up
[09:12] <Darkside> might help to increase the amount of sync bytes, which is set on line 488 of main.c
[09:13] <Darkside> but first test is to go back to a known-working baseline (i.e. re git-clone my RS41HUP repo, and try again
[09:14] <Darkside> PE2BZ: you're not doing something silly like listening on the wrong sideband, right?
[09:14] <PE2BZ> Who me ? ;-)
[09:14] <PE2BZ> No, I even checked that... And the same radio / qrg is decoding the 200 bd rtty fine.
[09:14] <Darkside> ok
[09:15] <Darkside> haaang on
[09:15] <Darkside> the baud rates are linked
[09:15] <Darkside> you're transmitting 200 baud 4FSK
[09:16] <Darkside> yup
[09:17] <Darkside> just re-compiled horus_demod with the baud rate changed to 200 baud and it decodes fine
[09:17] <Darkside> i thought something sounded a little bit off about the signal..
[09:18] <PE2BZ> #define BAUD_RATE 200 // RTTY & MFSK Baud rate
[09:18] <Darkside> yeah
[09:18] <PE2BZ> good catch !
[09:18] <Darkside> so yep, that's it
[09:18] <PE2BZ> I just skipped the MFSK part when reading....
[09:18] <Darkside> well i should try and decouple the RTTY and MFSK bits
[09:18] <Darkside> but tbh i dont use the RTTY part of that code at all
[09:19] <PE2BZ> If you have some time ;-) we still have a couple of RTTY listeners, but because of short burst transmitters in ISM band I decided to go for 200 bd which makes the chance of good decodes a lot better.
[09:21] <Darkside> just do continuous MFSK at 100 baud
[09:21] <Darkside> the RTTY listeners will figure it out eventually
[09:22] <Darkside> bbl...

[17:49] <PE2BZ> OZ1SKY_Brian, yes I am. I disabled the blinking on hexchat sorry
[17:50] <OZ1SKY_Brian> hi. testet the cw sonde today, heard 50km away from my window
[17:50] <PE2BZ> That´s quite a distance !
[17:51] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yeah, he does have a big antenna system, but still
[17:51] <PE2BZ> My max distance with 10 dBm rtty was with PB0AHX over 8 km
[17:52] <PE2BZ> 10 dBm LoRa on 27 m ASL in omniderectional however was with Ron G8FJG :-)
[17:52] <OZ1SKY_Brian> also found out the > in the cw message is hardcoded
[17:53] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yeah thats a good one too :-)
[17:53] <OZ1SKY_Brian> also found out the "PA" is activated by the RTTY and/or APRS INIT, so it will not work in CW mode online after a power cycle.
[17:54] <OZ1SKY_Brian> online=onle
[17:54] <OZ1SKY_Brian> only
[17:55] <OZ1SKY_Brian> so rtty and/or aprs have to be active for it to do cw after a power cycle.
