Experiment Feedback

Medicina (G.Maccaferri at Thu Dec 2 09:38:18 MET 1999) Minor failures
Problems with antenna tracking. Experiment suspended from 8:25UT to 9:45 UT for repairing of one motor driver. Good tracking untill 22:00UT, then antenna blocked again untill end of experiment.

Jodrell (Alastair Gunn at Thu Dec 2 11:11:09 MET 1999) Minor failures
Due to high winds telescope was parked between the following approximate times; 20:08 to 22:20 UT and 06:00 to 08:30 UT. Telescope offline from about 12:20 to 12:40 UT due to azimuth servo fault. No other known problems.

Effelsberg (A. Kraus at Thu Dec 2 11:42:51 MET 1999) Minor failures
Strong winds made the observations impossible between UT0020 and UT0125.

Torun (K.Borkowski at Thu Dec 2 16:25:08 MET 1999) Minor failures
Observations off source between 6:17 and 7:14 UTC because of necessity to unwrap cables by rotating the antenna by 360 deg. Recording stopped from 17:15 till 17:52 because the tape deformed so that it had to be rewinded. The deformation may pose further difficulties at the correlator.

Onsala (John Conway at Mon Dec 13 09:20:04 MET 1999) Minor failures
No observations due to high winds. No tape shipped.

Calibration (Jean\-Francois Desmurs at Wed Dec 15 13:19:40 MET 1999) Success
