We did not observe because our P&G recorder is broken. The problem is related to electronics and/or mechanics responsible for tape driving. Works continue towards identifying more concrete reason.
Medicina (ZP, for Andrea Orlati at Thu Oct 30 09:59:53 2003) Minor failures :
Patch panel was not properly configured. Data from VC02 and VC04 were probably lost.
Onsala (Michael Lindqvist at Thu Oct 30 10:58:11 2003) Minor failures :
No known problems with the Mark4 recording.
For some scans there was no disc_end at the end.
This means that Mark5 continue to record, appending to the previous scan.
Effelsberg (A. Kraus at Thu Oct 30 12:29:14 2003) Minor failures : RECO
First 2 mins lost - MK5 problems.
Jodrell_Bank (Alastair Gunn at Mon Nov 3 10:36:50 2003) Success :
No known problems. Did not piggyback Mk5.
Noto (P. Cassaro at Mon Nov 3 13:18:38 2003) Success :
Westerbork (Tony Foley at Tue Nov 4 14:43:40 2003) Success : RECO
During this observation the capstan motor drive electronics
failed, BUT as this was in piggyback on Mark5 discs this data
is to be found there.
The capstan motor went into maximum possible speed and so ripped
the tape apart, with about 95% on the reel. We wound the other
5% onto the reel.
Fortunately we had spare transistors from an old tape unit
