Calibration (Fredrik T Rantakyro at Thu May 8 11:32:43 METDST 1997) Success
The ANTAB file for the experiment has been placed on VLBEER in the Feb97 directory with the name es16b.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 Tue Sep 23 14:42:48 METDST 1997) Minor failures
Torun tapes unreadable.

MPIfR (Scott Aaron at Thu Oct 2 14:31:37 METDST 1997) Success
Correction: Torun tapes readable, data in upper four IFs only.

MPIfR (Scott Aaron at Fri Mar 13 10:53:35 MET 1998) Minor failures
Correlation completed. Very bad tracking problems with Torun tapes; correlation of those baselines not completed.
