[06:43] <ly2en> NOB15-12 over LY :)
[06:45] <SA6BSS-Mike> yes, Stefan uses a "cleaned" 2 gore Windretir balloon with He , works well :)
[06:46] <SA6BSS-Mike> https://www.windreiter-shop.com/
[06:46] <SA6BSS-Mike> some custom version very close to the 279-250
[06:51] <ly2en> I saw the new VE3KCL document on the groups.io reflector
[06:51] <ly2en> a lot material on balloon preparation
[06:53] <SA6BSS-Mike> yes, or to keep it simple, just use a hairblower, then its done in no time and the result will be the same no mather when you do it, summer hot moist room or winter cold dry air, so def hairblower :)
[06:55] <SA6BSS-Mike> Davids method does not work here or I had to raise the room temp to 25° and put a air humidifier in and then I could run 5-8h streaches, so hairblower , its done in 10 min and its repeateble any time of the year at "room" temp
[06:58] <SA6BSS-Mike> so, any upcoming launches?
[06:58] <SA6BSS-Mike> I saw the failed SBS13 launch last week 😬
[06:59] <SA6BSS-Mike> Stil have the Yokohama left?
[07:01] <ly2en> yes but the kids left it uncovered in the class
[07:01] <ly2en> and it got dirty/dusty
[07:01] <ly2en> need to clean it
[07:02] <ly2en> I have one pending on Friday
[07:02] <ly2en> and few more chinese next week
[07:02] <SA6BSS-Mike> roger
[07:02] <ly2en> now those are not demo flights so we'll follow the weather
[07:02] <ly2en> but the weather is total crap here
[07:02] <SA6BSS-Mike> thats much better :)
[07:02] <SA6BSS-Mike> ok
[07:03] <ly2en> https://www.gismeteo.lt/weather-vilnius-4230/10-days/
[07:03] <SA6BSS-Mike> wel, it really needed to come some rain , we basicly had no rain for two month
[07:03] <ly2en> so there will be sun/rain interchangeably
[07:03] <SA6BSS-Mike> same here
[07:03] <ly2en> https://www.gismeteo.lt/weather-alytus-4152/10-days/ here is an alternative launch site
[07:03] <ly2en> 100km away, not much difference
[07:04] <SA6BSS-Mike> looks like you also getting better weather next week
[07:04] <ly2en> kind of
[07:04] <SA6BSS-Mike> same over here, not that far away
[07:04] <ly2en> so posted a NOTAM request for the 8-10 of Jun
[07:04] <SA6BSS-Mike> so you have to go to certen siters to launch
[07:05] <SA6BSS-Mike> cant just walk out the door and release?
[07:06] <ly2en> I can but there is one school there at Alytus
[07:06] <ly2en> :)

[07:06] <ly2en> and from my site, south is the airport
[07:06] <ly2en> so preferable winds, unpreferable navigational conditions
[07:06] <SA6BSS-Mike> aha, better keep clear of that!
[07:07] <ly2en> normally low winds don't go south
[07:07] <ly2en> but when they do
[07:07] <ly2en> some Ryanair flight has to wait for 10 mins
[07:07] <ly2en> :)
[07:07] <SA6BSS-Mike> hehe ok :)
[07:09] <SA6BSS-Mike> SA6BSS-8 checked in again , now up to 127 days in the air
[07:09] <SA6BSS-Mike> its the Yokohama
[07:18] <ly2en> we've done 8 grams for most SBS13 that we launched but it seems the water/ice was outweighing
[07:19] <ly2en> the chinese went up with 6 grams but still no luck going 1km up through clouds
[07:19] <SA6BSS-Mike> ok, any cloud in the way up will send it back down
[07:19] <SA6BSS-Mike> its needs to be a clear day
[07:19] <ly2en> we launched LY1BWB-13 through thin clouds and it recovered
[07:20] <ly2en> but I think there were low (warm) clouds and thin, so the point of moisture was not well reached
[07:20] <ly2en> i think it's called the dewpoint
[07:21] <ly2en> do you put fishing line for the bottom part of antenna to support it? it weighs up to 0.2g
[07:24] <SA6BSS-Mike> no
[07:24] <SA6BSS-Mike> I dont even put fishing line on the top :)
[07:25] <SA6BSS-Mike> just the last 1 m towards the balloon , else its hanging in it 0,15mm wire
[07:32] <SA6BSS-Mike> Im off to work, l8er

[08:45] <VK5QI> daveake: need to upload that to amateur.sondehub.org too :-)
[08:46] <VK5QI> new feature on amateur.sondehub that habhub has't ever have - you can set the parameters for the predictor now
[08:46] <daveake> Heh ... I'll see if I get time :)
[08:46] <daveake> Cool
[08:47] <daveake> I planned a pico (100g latex) but was asked to to a larger balloon with downward-facing camera to video the site
[08:47] <daveake> However ... that needs permission, and not enough time
[08:48] <daveake> Tried, but thge CAA have yet to replace the guy that did them for us before
[08:48] <daveake> Also next weekend is a bit special here, so they're snowed under
[08:48] <daveake> 250 applications to do in 3 days
[08:48] <daveake> So it's back to doing a pico
[08:49] <daveake> It has an uplink and I might use it as a relay between EMF badges
[08:49] <daveake> Depends what they can do exactly
[08:49] <VK5QI> i have a python lib now for uploading to sondehub, not that it helps you that much
[08:50] <VK5QI> https://github.com/projecthorus/pysondehub/wiki/SondeHub-Amateur-Uploader-Class-Usage
[08:50] <daveake> That's fine I can get the telemetry from the gateway with Python
[08:50] <VK5QI> but the debug output from it might help with getting the packets to upload right
[08:50] <VK5QI> ok
