The observations went smoothly.
There might have been a problem soon after the tape change.
The FS was complaining about the head 2 positioning; this
was fixed by re-entering the positioning by hand.
A few seconds of the first forward pass on the second tape might have been lost.

The problem with the recording head was fixed and we are observing again. No known problems.

Possibly polarization wrong from 0800 to 0820UT. Many scans
after 1130UT outside Hour Angle range. During a playback test
tracks 26-32 gave high parity errors, but our decoder works
badly at 8Mbits/s.

FS crash at start of scedule, okay by 08:07 UT. Tape didnt stop
at 08:27 UT, error by PI in timing. Tape failed to start at 13:01
reversal, started manually at 13:05. Incorrect antenna.ctl file
used, should be Mk2.
