[00:49] <VK5QI> Token: wher are you located?
[01:01] <Token> Near Death Valley, California
[01:03] <Token> And I went and grabbed my first radiosonde today, one launched from Edwards Air Force Base in California today.
[01:03] <Token> An LMS6

[02:28] <VK5QI> Token: ok, cool, lots of sondes launched in california
[02:29] <VK5QI> a good mix too, LMS6, RS41
[02:29] <VK5QI> Token: if you recovered a sonde, please mark it as recovered on sondehub
[02:37] <Token> Done
[02:38] <Token> 8182571 logged as recovered
[02:38] <Token> Hmmm, maybe not, just got an error from the page
[02:39] <Token> Do I have to be registered to log?
[02:42] <VK5QI> no, what was the error?
[02:42] <VK5QI> oh, you will need to search for the sonde first (search box top left) so it appears on the map
[02:42] <VK5QI> then you can mark it as recovered
[02:43] <VK5QI> how did you find it when it was only tracked down to 3.3km altitude?
[02:44] <Token> I got there within 20 minutes of touch down, and it was still transmitting. The actual location was less than 1000 meters form the projected landing point.
[02:45] <Token> The error was "Verificaiton expired. Check the checkbox again." in the reCAPTCHA
[02:47] <Token> So I found it with the radio in my truck, at least got very close to it using that radio. Took me about 20 minutes to find it after I left the vehicle.
[02:48] <VK5QI> Token: ah, well you should be able to re-do the re-captcha, or maybe refresh the page
[02:48] <Token> Tried both, 3 times so far
[02:49] <VK5QI> and it just keeps saying veritfication expired? :/
[02:49] <VK5QI> tickbox never goes green?
[02:49] <VK5QI> this sounds like a browser issue :/
[02:50] <Token> Ahhh, it goes green, then red and gives me that error. ALso, "Report Results" say "Outside distance limit"
[02:51] <VK5QI> hrm i thought i removed the distance limit..
[02:52] <VK5QI> nope, i set it to 200km
[02:52] <VK5QI> and im guessing you are outside of that range?
[02:52] <Token> No
[02:53] <Token> I am maybe 100 km from there right now
[02:53] <VK5QI> in which case if your location is showing up on the map, it should work
[02:53] <VK5QI> you may need to enable location services, or allow the site to show your location, or similar
[02:54] <Token> "No position available" I bet that is the issue.
[02:54] <VK5QI> yep
[02:54] <VK5QI> could try it on your phone?
[02:55] <Token> No cell coverage here at the house. We are a bit remote ;)
[02:55] <Token> I will log it tomorrow when I can get into the site from the phone
[02:56] <VK5QI> ahh
[02:56] <VK5QI> i mean, cant jump on wifi?
[02:56] <VK5QI> with your phone?
[02:57] snaked (~snaked@user/snaked) left irc: Ping timeout: 240 seconds
[02:57] <Token> Typically not, I don't actually have WiFi on at the house, everything is wired.

[02:58] <VK5QI> oh
[02:58] <VK5QI> well, i cant really help then :/
[02:58] <VK5QI> if you dont have location services available, you wont be able to mark anything as recovered
[02:58] <VK5QI> this is intentional to avoid people marking sondes halfway around the world as recovered maliciously
[02:58] <Token> No problem, I will hit it tomorrow morning on the way to work. Should be fine then
[02:58] <Token> ANd the reasoning makes sense
[02:59] <VK5QI> so yeah, i would suggest setting up a receiver system
[02:59] <VK5QI> and at the moment, the only thing that will decode the LMS6 sondes is auto_rx
[02:59] <Token> But in the future I will rememebr to do it while near the rocovery site ;)
[03:00] <Token> Yes, I noticed that. I have RS41 Tracker on my home Windows machine, it does RS41 just fine, but would do nothing with LMS6
[03:01] <VK5QI> RS41Tracker also doesnt upload to sondehub
[03:02] <VK5QI> the author did indicate they were working on it, but it wasnt included in the latest release, and we havent heard anything from them

[03:03] <Token> At home I have been receiving them (sondes) for the last week using either my RFSpace NetSDR or my Icom R8600. But I have an RTL SDR, Raspberry Pi, and built a 403 1/4 wave to do a Pi setup using auto-rx
[03:03] <Token> So iin a week or so I should have that up and running form the high desert
[03:05] <Token> *from
[03:05] <VK5QI> cool!

[03:09] <Token> As well as wideband receive

[03:11] <VK5QI> for tracking down the sonde in the car, you would be better off just having a rpi + rtlsdr in the car
[03:11] <VK5QI> then when you get near the landing location you should be able to decode the telemetry and get a final landing position
