Medicina (GMaccaferri at Wed Feb 26 11:14:45 EST 1997) Success

Onsala (Antonis Polatidis at Thu Feb 27 07:39:06 EST 1997) Minor failures
Due to high winds we could only observe between 0908 and 1028. Winds as high as 16m/s.

Westerbork (Tony Foley at Fri Feb 28 08:55:16 EST 1997) Minor failures
Used 8 telescopes in the tied array. Pointing problems with 1 telescope (RT8) around 0943UT

Effelsberg (dgraham at Mon Mar 3 03:18:59 EST 1997) Success

Jodrell (Alastair Gunn at Thu Mar 6 04:20:42 EST 1997) Minor failures
No major problems. Telescope parked due to high winds at 15:06 UT. Weather cloudy and rainy.

Calibration (Fredrik T Rantakyro at Thu May 8 11:35:49 METDST 1997) Success
The ANTAB file for the experiment has been placed on VLBEER in the Feb97 directory with the name eg15b.antab. This file contains the preliminary calibration results and may be updated when I receive updated information from the telescopes and the results from the datareduction of the calibration experiments.

MPIfR (Scott Aaron at Wed Apr 29 13:32:07 METDST 1998) Minor failures
Correlation completed. Jodrell tape bad on reverse passes. Jodrell data correlated twice because of a large (nearly 11 microseconds) difference between the GPS and true clock values. The original correlation was done on a delay sidelobe.
