[19:19] <JohnShephard> Sorry, finger trouble. Im starting my first HAB project but am having trouble with sorting out tracking. Radios seem expensive to buy, is there another cheaper way to let me track and retrieve? Many thanks
[19:22] <SA6BSS-Mike> an rtl radio is 25$ and should get you settled, then a small antenna, or go with the 35$ kit and you have antenna as well
[19:22] <SA6BSS-Mike> https://www.rtl-sdr.com/buy-rtl-sdr-dvb-t-dongles/
[19:22] <SA6BSS-Mike> plus a computer but thats probably not a problem

[20:56] ijmunro (50ebe222@80.235.226.34) joined #highaltitude.
[20:58] <ijmunro> Hello! I don't mind admitting, after a week of research, I am woefully out my depth trying to get up to speed on balloon launch requirements, tech and regulations. I reckoned it would be a cool project for me and my son to get into but now that I see the enormity of it, I could use some guidance!
[21:03] <SM0ULC-David> Have you read Dave's excellent guide?
[21:03] <SM0ULC-David> http://www.daveakerman.com/?p=1732
[21:06] <ijmunro> I have indeed.
[21:07] <ijmunro> I am certainly not struggling with a lack of information, its an excellently documented activity. I am however suffering from information overload and I guess was really trying to find out what specifically i should be focussing in on.
[21:09] <ijmunro> Balloon, chute, box etc, no problems. Camera, power also no issue. Tracking at ground level, have that sorted assuming it doesn't stop working in flight! Tracking however, thats where I come unstuck. I have a software/hardware background but the choices seem to be endless of what direction to head in and wondered what experienced people would
[21:09] <ijmunro> recommend for a newbie.
[21:10] <ijmunro> Was also hoping not to spend the earth first time around but would love to give it all the best chance of success.
[21:11] <ijmunro> And finally, is it possible, once we are all free to run around the country, to hook up with someone else who is doing a launch to see how it all is supposed to work!
[21:12] <PC4L> the country is the UK I assume :)
[21:13] chris_99 (uid26561@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-ypaswkedwvwhjhxp) left irc:
[21:15] <ijmunro> Sorry, yes. And even more complicated, Scotland.
[21:17] <PC4L> do you need to ask permission to launch a balloon in Scotland?
[21:19] <ijmunro> Yes, I believe all of the UK requires permission.
[21:20] <PC4L> R U sending pictures over the air or just recording it to SD card?
[21:21] <ijmunro> I planned to just record to SD. I have a GoPro 3 which I plan to use.
[21:21] <ijmunro> How successful are images over the air?
[21:21] <PC4L> then no party balloon for you :)
[21:22] <PC4L> http://ssdv.habhub.org/
[21:22] <SA6BSS-Mike> then just go recover a rs41 and reprogram :)
[21:22] <ijmunro> Darn! I had a nice peppa pig one picked out.
[21:22] <PC4L> there´s is not much 2 see right now.. there must be some examples available
[21:24] <PC4L> http://pe2bz.synology.me:6080/photo/?fbclid=IwAR2OnL_yNFayUFJHgHh6N9lnPOR1j9QIw88-NL_jMKm5DtH2qRVjfF2nH04#!Albums/album_48414220416c62756d73/album_48414220416c62756d732f323031392d31312d31302057656e6574205043344c
[21:24] <ijmunro> Its OK, I am happy with the gopro option just now. So on to tracking and ultimately recovery, any advice which setup is most common?
[21:25] <ijmunro> Thats superb.......
[21:26] <SA6BSS-Mike> buying or building?
[21:27] <ijmunro> I planned to build because I can.
[21:27] <PC4L> I think Mike is going to sent his link :)
[21:27] <ijmunro> But if the cost of parts = cost of buying, I am delighted to puchase!
[21:28] <SA6BSS-Mike> so many any and so split up :) but no cheap ones arround realy
[21:29] <PC4L> well an arduino pro mini with chinese gps and lora module is not the world?!
[21:29] <ijmunro> I have an uno but that may be overkill?
[21:30] <PC4L> not if you recover :)
[21:31] <ijmunro> Well indeed. I was thinking more from a size and weight point of view....
[21:31] <PC4L> have you read the PITS project? https://www.pi-in-the-sky.com/
[21:33] <ijmunro> I saw it yes but its out of stock and also £150!
[21:33] <ijmunro> I do have a spare Pi 3 also though....
[21:38] <PC4L> for me the easiest one is de pro mini, solder some wires to a gps and lora module and use one of the many HAB sketches around and you´re good to go for a few $$
[21:39] <PC4L> I also flied with this one https://www.makerfabs.com/maduino-lora-radio-433m-868m-915m.html?search=lora%20433
[21:39] <PC4L> lora already installed.. just add a gps your tracker is alive
[21:40] <PC4L> you can use lora and rtty tx
[21:42] <ijmunro> amazing. That makes a lot of sense
[21:46] <PC4L> https://ibb.co/Mn4g074
[21:47] <PC4L> my first one.. not very proud of it HI
[21:48] <PC4L> https://ibb.co/Tk1pn8y
[21:49] <PC4L> there is so much to build anything.. just start! :)
[21:50] <ijmunro> Good advice!
