[17:03] <OZ1SKY_Brian> looks like the AFB have switch from dfm09 to rs41
[17:03] <OZ1SKY_Brian> last days been rs41 going up
[17:03] <OZ1SKY_Brian> first rs41 ive seen here in DK
[17:04] <OZ1SKY_Brian> meaning launched from DK
[17:04] <OZ1SKY_Brian> S4150544 pretty new batch
[17:07] <OZ1SKY_Brian> erh well no, looks like its T41xxxxx going up in Finland
[17:16] <eor> S415 would be approx one year old
[17:17] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yeah your right, wonder where they got them from
[17:17] <OZ1SKY_Brian> they allways been using Graw as long as i can remember
[17:17] <OZ1SKY_Brian> dfm06 and 09
[17:20] <eor> what's there to wonder
[17:20] <eor> you give money to vaisala, they give you sondes
[17:20] <OZ1SKY_Brian> sure but if they are going to chance to rs41, i would thing they got a newer batch
[17:21] <OZ1SKY_Brian> unless they have had then for a longer time, and now just run out of dfm09
[17:21] <eor> maybe they've been piling up and need to use old stock first
[17:21] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yeah
[17:21] <eor> I mean there are many many older sondes flying currently also worldwide
[17:22] <OZ1SKY_Brian> sure, but the "normal" users might also have a big stock, the AFB here should not have that, since they been on Graw untill now, anyway could also just be a "test"
[17:23] <OZ1SKY_Brian> or maybe nato made a deal with vaisala and this is just the start of the change over
[17:23] <OZ1SKY_Brian> time will tell

[17:28] <eor> rs92 sondes are getting pretty rare
[17:28] <OZ1SKY_Brian> not seen any of those for a long time
[17:29] <eor> there's one on the map, off the coast near jacksonville in the past 12 hours
[17:30] <OZ1SKY_Brian> i think thats 1600mhz rs92
[17:30] <eor> yes
[17:30] <OZ1SKY_Brian> last 400mhz rs92 ive seen was from Lindenberg Germany
[17:30] <OZ1SKY_Brian> but thats a long time ago
[17:32] <OZ1SKY_Brian> well looks like not THAT long ago, they launched a few in 2021
[17:33] <eor> that's like the main hub of GRUAN network
[17:33] <OZ1SKY_Brian> last one 2021-06-15
[17:33] <eor> they probably do some comparison checks
[17:34] <OZ1SKY_Brian> looks like they tried a few
[17:35] <OZ1SKY_Brian> rs41,92 dfm06 dfm09 dfm17 m10 srsc34 and srsc50
[17:37] <eor> nice
[17:38] <eor> there is also going to be a WMO intercomparison campaign
[17:39] <eor> "The campaign will take place in 2021 at DWDs Meteorological Observatory Lindenberg (Germany), and will be organized under the auspices of WMO, with DWD and MeteoSwiss as project co-leads and local organizers."
[17:39] <eor> however it's been postponed to 2022
[17:41] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ahh Lindenberg, same place
[17:48] <OZ1SKY_Brian> looks like a float https://sondehub.org/T1930292
[18:00] <ly2en> still getting some weird GPS errors about the antenna, can anyone please confirm a thin 46mm wire should do the job ?
[18:01] <ly2en> 11 sats in sight, but no lat/lon
[18:08] es5nhc (~es5nhc@static-213-100-139-88.cust.tele2.ee) left irc: Ping timeout: 268 seconds
[18:21] <PE2BZ> ly2en, 47 mm I take, with about 1 mm in / on the PCB, so 46 mm ¨active¨ antenna length
[18:21] <PE2BZ> With 11 sats that should never be a problem ?
[18:22] <PE2BZ> You are not transmitting LoRa signals nearby the GPS antenna, nor have a Pi Camera flat wire close to it ?
[18:25] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ge Ben
[18:26] <OZ1SKY_Brian> T1930292 still on float
[18:27] <ly2en> https://pasteboard.co/VVa9l3SoHWop.png
[18:27] <ly2en> will try this design
[18:27] <ly2en> PE2BZ: i have si5351 close hehe :) on the other end of the pcb
[18:38] <PE2BZ> GE Brian :-)
[18:40] <PE2BZ> ly2en, pse skip that design. Works for some, but it´s an oversized monster. I do not take that the twisted part works as ¨coax¨ so I allways only use one single 47 mm wire to the GPS. Usually guitar string but also copperwire with emaille around

[19:01] <PE2BZ> Antenna open is good :-)
[19:01] <PE2BZ> Antenna short is not good
[19:02] <PE2BZ> Antenna xx mA means active antenna is connected which is powered from the GPS module
[19:03] <ly2en> again, got 7 sats and no lat/lon
[19:04] <ly2en> will give it few more mins
[19:09] <ly2en> okay now the fun part :) on the GPS serial (atgm336h) I get the coordinates, but the gps.location.isValid() from tinygps arduino library gives me false
[19:09] <ly2en> so something is still wrong
[19:10] <ly2en> https://pastebin.com/SAkvg5Hu
[19:11] <PE2BZ> You call that the fun part ;-)
[19:14] <ly2en> at least the $GPGGA gives me a valid fix bit

[22:11] <VK5QI> permissions issues
[22:12] <VK5QI> if you've run it with sudo, its going to have left various log files around the place which are owned by root

[22:14] <VK5QI> try running: sudo rm *.csv in your auto_rx dir, then start the service up again
[22:21] <Prutz> removing the log file?
