Does any one have a log file of the output data of the Eggfinder from a flight? I am working on an application but have got my eggfinder in the air yet to collect data.
GPS Rocket Locator has the ability to log but I suspect a fair number of people just want to find their rocket and don't bother turning the switch on nor take the trouble looking for theDoes any one have a log file of the output data of the Eggfinder from a flight?

Your better off with the NMEA, there's a lot more data in there. Probably most important in the timing information, KML does not appear to include it.Google Earth will take a native NMEA file just fine, but there are also NMEA to KML converters around. I've tried a few, they seem to work.
I would like to try to capture the NMEA sentences by just using my ham radio (VX-6R or Kenwood TM-D710 and no RX dongle or LCD receiver),You can capture the NMEA data feed by using a terminal program to grab the output of the RX dongle or the LCD receiver, or use something like OpenLog to grab the data as it streams in. If you're pairing with Bluetooth to an Android or Windows device I would imagine you could save it to that too, but I haven't tried it.
PM me your email address and I'll send a NMEA file that I captured during some early Eggfinder testing (TRF's uploader doesn't like the file so I can't attach it here). It was from a LPR test so it didn't go very far, but it should be good enough to test your software.
Won't work with those rigs above. The EggFinder is on 33cm/ISM/900Mhz band. It's not just simple FM.

by feeding the audio in to my laptop and using some software to decode the NMEA sentences on the screen.
This is how I do it with my GPS transmitters that send APRS and I receive it with my ham radio and feed the
audio into my laptop that uses MIXW software to decode the APRS on the screen.
Anyone know how to do do this with NMEA transmissions? I have heard of Spectrum Labs software but
I cannot figure out how to configure the sound card with the audio input.
