Westerbork (Tony Foley at Tue Jun 8 09:19:20 2004) Minor failures : RFI PHAS
Wb used in phased array mode. We had not received the email about using version 3 of the schedule, so until I tested the procedure files and found them wrong in version 2 I had no suspicion. DRUDGed ver.3 in the afternoon. Bad pulsed RFI above 1622MHz all the time caused problems phasing the array. Best estimate (now) is a 58deg error combining X and Y pol - giving about a 15% loss in efficiency, and VERY elliptical polarizations.

The Lovell Telescope was used. No known problems.

Hartebeesthoek (Jonathan Quick at Tue Jun 8 11:32:47 2004) Minor failures : RFI
Four panels missing due to surface setting procedure. Intermittent severe RFI in channels 5 through 8.

Effelsberg (A. Kraus at Tue Jun 8 12:58:03 2004) Minor failures : RFI
