Effelsberg (A. Kraus at Tue Jun 15 08:43:38 METDST 1999) Success

Torun (K. Borkowski at Tue Jun 15 09:44:08 METDST 1999) Minor failures
The first 4 minutes lost due to wrongly mounted tape. There was an atmospheric storm during the observation from about 20:45 to about 22:15 UT.

Noto (C.Trigilio at Tue Jun 15 14:35:41 METDST 1999) Success
At 22:25 changed attenuation at the IF (+3db). No problem with the observations.

Onsala (A. Polatidis at Thu Jun 17 08:35:15 METDST 1999) Success

Jodrell (Alastair Gunn at Fri Jun 18 11:03:40 METDST 1999) Minor failures
Suffered major power failure 15 minutes prior to schedule. Maser lost lock and formatter was re-synched. Data probably bad until after 19:45 UT. Note that from this time the gps-fmout value was increasing steadily due to a problem with the maser. This was only rectified during experiment w027a2.

Westerbork (Tony Foley at Fri Jun 18 16:42:59 METDST 1999) Minor failures
Used 12 telescopes in the array. Only central part of 16MHz band has signal, as the array uses 10MHz bands. Parity error rates seemed good.

Calibration (Jean\-Francois Desmurs at Mon Jun 21 16:18:23 METDST 1999) Success
