Experiment Feedback

Westerbork (tony foley at Fri May 30 15:54:32 METDST 1997) Minor failures
From the start (0400) to 1304UT the VC settings were 10MHz too high. This was traced to the lack of a "LO" line for westerbork in the DRG file.

Medicina (Sergio Mariotti at Fri May 30 21:04:41 METDST 1997) Success
It seem everythings OK. of course, there are strong interference into the band.

Onsala (A. Polatidis at Fri May 30 22:07:13 METDST 1997) Minor failures
Lost the first 4 hours due to a 5 deg pointing offset left from the previous nights pointing observations. Occasional interference after 1740 UT. Lasting only a few seconds at a time so no significant loss of data. Possibly a ships radar ?

Westerbork (tony foley at Mon Jun 2 13:20:35 METDST 1997) Minor failures
Pass 13 (~16:28UT) lost because of problems with the tape unit.

Effelsberg (dgraham at Mon Jun 2 13:49:49 METDST 1997) Minor failures
1257-1329 not on source

Jodrell (Alastair Gunn at Thu Jun 5 10:28:54 METDST 1997) Minor failures
FS crashed at 17:45, lost scans 17 and 18. No other known problems.

Cambridge (Alastair Gunn at Thu Jun 5 12:17:14 METDST 1997) Minor failures
Like Westerbork we found missing LO line in schedule (where did the PI get the codes.sch file from?). MERLIN link was down anyway so data lost until probably scan 12 or after 09:40UT. First tape label missing from Log (HS003521,0030).

Noto (C.Trigilio at Mon Jun 9 15:48:25 METDST 1997) Success
No problem reported.

Calibration (Fredrik T Rantakyro at Mon Jul 21 11:14:20 METDST 1997) Minor failures
The ANTAB file for the experiment can be found on VLBEER in the MAY97 directory with the name EA17.ANTAB. The file is ready to be used with the AIPS tasks ANTAB/APCAL. Read the ANTAB file for any specific comments regarding this experiment.

MPIfR (Scott Aaron at Wed Nov 12 11:33:18 MET 1997) Minor failures
Correlation completed. Jodrell has no data on some scans.
