Experiment Feedback

Westerbork (Tony Foley at Thu Dec 5 10:59:00 EST 1996) Success
Looks Ok, but Tsys ~2000Jy, and Linear pol. PCAL refuses to work in FS9.3.3

Effelsberg (d graham at Fri Dec 6 03:08:46 EST 1996) Minor failures
Some problems with badly maintained tape machine, occasionally loses vacuum on check procedures. Otherwise OK. Tape sent to Bonn

Jodrell (Alastair Gunn at Fri Dec 6 06:36:03 EST 1996) Success
No known problems. Weather calm with scattered cloud, cold. the odd Mk3 tracks will have NO valid data due to probable faulty interface card. We are investigating this problem. Tape sent to Bonn on 6th December 1996.
