Experiment Feedback

Westerbork (Tony Foley at Thu Dec 5 11:01:10 EST 1996) Minor failures
(see mk4ta) Tsys ~2000Jy, and Linear polarization. Note that there is practically no signal left in VC12 and VC14; our IF does not allow 128MHz bandwidth at present.

Effelsberg (d graham at Fri Dec 6 03:10:23 EST 1996) Success
Seems OK, tape sent to Bonn.

Jodrell (Alastair Gunn at Fri Dec 6 06:38:27 EST 1996) Success
No known problems. Weather calm with scattered cloud. The odd Mk3 tracks will contain NO valid data due to probable faulty interface card. We are investigating this problem. Tape sent to Bonn on 6th December 1996.
