ANNONCE BALLON UK SKYBLUE1 & RTLS1 le 25 juin 2016

All being well, a school team will be launching their balloon from here on Saturday about 11am.  As well as their tracker, I'm adding one of my trackers partly as a backup but mainly so I can test some new code.

The school's tracker (SKYBLUE1) is an NTX2 doing RTTY.

My tracker is RTLS1, using LoRa only.  The telemetry has quite a few sensor values plus a landing predictor and other stuff, so the sentence is quite long, but with the relatively high data rate the update speed is better than 1Hz.  The hardware is an original Pi Zero with a prototype PitsZero board plus BME280 (temperature/pressure/humidity) and LSM303 (3-axis compass/accelerometer).

Predicted burst is 35km and predicted landing is 15 miles or so west of here, so an easy chase if we can avoid the Welsh hills.

Payload IDs etc are:


 
* SKYBLUE1 - RTTY, 434.650MHz, 550Hz shift, 50 baud 7N2 USB
 
* RTLS1 - LoRa, 434.450MHz, mode 1 (20.45kHz / SF6 / EC5:8, implicit header)

ANNONCES DIVERSES SEMAINE 19 au 26 juin 2016

Hi,

My Pico floater is heading to notrhern coast of UK, please monitor
434.550 MHz USB for contestia siglals :-)
APRS and 144.251 MHz will be shut down over UK.

Tom, SP9UOB
 ------------------------------------------------

Well, due to bug in code (one flag is ignored) APRS will not shut down :-(
Apologize for that.

But Contestia 32/1000 should be on 434.550 MHz USB

Tom, SP9UOB
 -----------------------------------------------

"APRS will not shut down"

I'm sure the world will continue to turn. Congrats on a round the world
flight ?

Hi Folks,


We are slowly getting a talks lined up for the conference but still have several slots left. 

What subject would people like to see talks/demonstrations on? - it can be anything from basics to advanced topics, as we like to have a spread of subject matter.  Something for everyone.

Alternatively if you would like to give a specific talk then drop Daniel or myself a line.

If you haven’t already signed up you can do so here:


https://ukhas.org.uk/general:ukhasconference2016
<https://ukhas.org.uk/general:ukhasconference2016>


Steve  G8KHW 

----------------------------------------------------

Just a quick note/reminder that it's not easy to track a flight if the published frequency is wrong.

Also, if you have a flight planned, please check the published frequencies for other flights on the same day so you can avoid a conflict.  Today's UK flights both had the same published frequency (434.250MHz) so presumably neither team checked the other one.  Fortunately (in this case) one of the two was wrong and was actually on 434.650MHz.

Oh, and while I have my soapbox out, do remember to actually test your payload documents (i.e. run your tracker, decode and upload and check you're on the map (and if not, have a look at http://habitat.habhub.org/logtail/ to find out why not).  A lot of the requests for approval of flight documents have not had their payload documents tested, and the #habhub admins very understandably get a bit uppity at being asked to approve them.

ANNONCE BALLON UK ID IBMICL Sentinel1 le dimanche 19 juin 2016

Hi!

We're a group of Imperial College students, sending our first payload up with a 1600g Hwoyee balloon tomorrow (Sunday 18/06/2016). Unfortunately, our first launch try a few days ago, ended in vein as our supplier delivered the needed helium to the wrong address, twice (on two separate occasions). Thank you to all who were helping us listen and we’re sorry that our launch didn’t take place for such a disappointing reason. If you would be so kind as to help us track it again, we will be launching tomorrow from Churchill college in Cambridge at approximately 11:00 am. We would appreciate any help in tracking our payload, there'll be LORA 868 and 434, as well as RTTY 434 to listen to.

Payload details:

Payload ID IBMICLSentinel, RTTY, 434.250MHz, 850Hz shift, 300 baud, 8 N 2, SSDV and telemetry.

Payload ID Sky1LoRa, LoRa, 869.850MHz, "Mode 1" Implicit mode, Error coding 4:5, Bandwidth 20.8kHz, SF 6, Low data rate optimize off SSDV and telemetry.

Payload ID Sky2LoRa, LoRa, 434.750MHz, "Mode 1" Implicit mode, Error coding 4:5, Bandwidth 20.8kHz, SF 6, Low data rate optimize off SSDV and telemetry. Every 30 seconds Sky2LoRa listens for incoming transmissions for 10 seconds.

We're also hoping we'll be able to transmit tweets up to our payload for display on the on-board screen. So if you want your tweets to show up high above the clouds then please tweet us at @IBMICLSentinel with #tospace followed by your message, alternatively tweet us #gethelp to get a list of commands back!

Many thanks from the Project Edge Team!

ANNONCE BALLON UK PICO F-2 le 15 juin 2016 from CANEWDON

Hi all,

I plan to try a launch tomorrow early evening ish between 17.00 / 19.00 .. Wednesday 15th.. Its a pico set up which is only battery powered but should last at least 48 hours. The transmitter will shut down after a short transmission which will be three times per hour, it should transmit dead on the hour and then 20 minutes past then 20 minutes too, there are no pips or tones between these transmissions but there maybe a short single tone of 15 seconds before it transmits 4 lines of data. If anyone does track and they have a time sync on their computer it would be nice to know how accurate the transmissions are..

launch is from Canewdon Essex

Call Sign : F-2
frequency : 434.070
Baud : 50
shift : 450 ish
bits : 8
Stop : 2

Many thanks

BALLON BARNABY LAUNCH le 10 juin 2016 depuis Welshpool

Hi all

While I'm still functioning (its been a long and exciting day!) - I just thought i'd take a moment to pop on and say a big thank you to everyone who tracked the Barnaby Launch from Welshpool today - we were even picked up in Holland (PE2BZ, I believe, and DutchBillMT?)

This was far from our first launch, but this was the first one with the Habduino on it, and so a lot was riding on it! - Thats why I went overboard and got it on the RSGB news, and southgate etc..

However...it paid off in droves, we got all the data we wanted, we got near real-time positioning, all in all it worked better than we imagined - I think its fair to say we'll be using it again!

I monitored from setup for about 90 minutes from the launch site, I was using an 817 with just a cheap 2/70 mini whip..and tbh, I got a useable signal the entire time, I couldnt upload all the time, as the phone signal wasn't brilliant!

And while were up there, we also stuck a copy of Oxygene to the craft...If you weren't aware, Oxygene is 40 this year, and JMJ is planning to produce a book, and wants pictures and artwork - so I took the opportunity, and it seems to have paid off pretty well!

ANNONCE BALLON DL BERLIN DK0TU-11 le 11 juin 2016

Hi,

Thomas KT5TK and I are going to launch a balloon on Saturday here in Berlin. It will be a 250g-Latex Balloon which we attempt to let float.
I have no idea if it works or not. We will see...

We will attach one of our Pecan Pico 7b SSDV tracker to the balloon.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwzVllHCGu5FSUQ0X2k4bnFJR0E

Callsign: DK0TU-11
Launch Site: Berlin
Launch Time: June 11th 2016 - 15:30 UTC (17:30 local)
Expected runtime: at least 2 days, maybe 4 days
Tracker weight: 48g (with batteries)

We will do Normal APRS every Minute but also our Special APRS/SSDV transmission. We run a special Software which picks up the packets from the APRS-IS and send them to Habhub. The APRS/SSDV packet is based on the original SSDV format, but we removed the Sync byte, CRC and FEC since we don't need it in an AX.25 frame which already contains a CRC. The packet is also base91 encoded since some characters collide with the APRS specification.

144.800 MHz Normal APRS (Cycle 1min)
144.800 MHz SSDV/APRS 1k2 (resolution QVGA, low duty cycle, ~1 picture every 30min)
144.860 MHz SSDV/APRS 9k6 (resolution VGA, packets sent twice, ~1 picture every 2min)

For 9k6 APRS/SSDV receiption there are two options of sending them to Habhub/ receiving the packets:

1. Use a ordinary 9k6 TNC and software which igates the packets to the APRS-IS. We can pick up the packets from the APRS-IS and send them to Habhub.
IMPORTANT: The image packets have a special flag (User defined, experimental) We know some programs which don't relay "User defined"-packets to the APRS-IS. Unfortunately this includes Xastir. I recommend Direwolf.

2. I've written a software for Windows which can Igate the received packets to Habhub directly without using the APRS-IS. It's based on rtl_sdr (Demodulation) and Direwolf (APRS Decoder) which can be used with an RTL SDR. I've written a short description how to use it on Github. The binaries can be downloaded here: dl7ad.de/aprs_ssdv_decoder.zip
Github: https://github.com/DL7AD/aprs_ssdv_decoder
Please send me a mail, if there are bugs.

All pictures will be displayed on the SSDV page: http://ssdv.habhub.org


Thomas and I are not going to retrieve the balloon immediately (if it goes down) since the balloon is part of an exhibition here in Berlin (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften, eng. Long night of science) an we probably have a lot of visitors, so we can't leave. We might do a rescue operation on Sunday. If there's someone here in Berlin who want to take place at the Launch:

Address: Strasse des 17. Juni 137 (TU-Berlin Hauptgebaeude)
Go up to 9th floor. Look for "Amateurfunk" signs.
There's an entry fee to this exhibition. If you enter the building early enough you might avoid the fee (14€, Students 9€). :P

After I got a PITS board on the Habitat map I am now try to get my HABduino on the map...
something I was never able to do. If there are any HABduino owners out there then can
 I ask if the settings for the HABduino on Dlfldigi (found under DL client: All payload testing) are correct.
Under the settings I cannot seem to get the set of two red bars over the red lines of the waterfall.
 Is the shift slightly out on the settings?

The settings are
custom shift 500
baud rate 50
8 (ascii) bits per character
none parity
2 stop bits
receive 68
auto crlf after 72 characters
RX  TX ticked

BANC D'ESSAIS ARDUINO avec deux UNO et une MEGA


























Ce banc d'essais comporte deux Arduino UNO sur les ports COM4 et COM6. Il y a aussi une MEGA
qui n'a pas encore été branché sur ce site.
Un émetteur 434 de type NTX2B permet de sortir les trames ballon, pour les capter sur le poste de réception distant.
A noter, qu'il faut quelques capteurs pour que les essais et le programme soit complet :
--- MPX5100AP   capteur de pression
--- 2 x  KTY-10-6 capteurs de température linéaires
--- 1 servo-moteur
---  des LEDS vertes (RS92SGPA)
---  une LED RGB  rouge, verte et bleue.
---  un opto coupleur 4N35  ou  TIL111.
---  des résistances pour le pont diviseur du NTX2B.


























L' Arduino UNO com4 fonctionne comme simulateur de GPS avec la trame NMEA GPGGA.



















Synoptique de principe pour une utilisation d'une carte UNO en application ballon stratosphérique.

La réception se fait avec un récepteur BLU en position USB. Pour capter les ballons lointains, il est
préférable d'installer une antenne directive extérieure sur un mat avec moteur.
Le soft utilisé est FL-DIGI bien connu. Il permet de configurer le mode de réception, qui est pour
ces essais, du RTTY à  50 bauds ( 7n2 et shift 170 sur l'image ).

La trame pour tester le GPS comporte, les deux $$ suivi de l'indicatif, l'heure, la latitude, la longitude, l'altitude, et les capteurs qui sont dans l'ordre :
--- pression à 836 points sur 1023.
--- une cellule LDR à  400 points
--- deux KTY-10  à  303 et 393 points
--- la tension d'alimentation divisée par 2  à  512 points
--- le 0 volt

En dernier un checksum, et les codes de saut à la ligne et retour chariot qui sont présents mais invisibles.

A suivre,
