Experiment Feedback

Onsala (Michael Lindqvist at Sun Nov 6 21:02:26 2005) Success :
Data affected by RFI (VC1 and VC2) a few times.

Torun (Kaz Borkowski at Mon Nov 7 09:16:09 2005) Failure : RECO
About an hour after start Mk5 stopped recording for unknown reason (could be a problem with disk-pack). sstest and restart of mk5 program did not help and situation repeated (about an hour proper work followed by the same error). The use of sstest was a mistake of an operator because it erased the earlier recorded experiment GV017B which most probably was subsequently overwritten during the second approach to recording of the current experiment.

Robledo (Cristina Garcia-Miro at Mon Nov 7 10:39:23 2005) Minor failures : RFI
Station Time delay: gps-fmout=+6.416 10-7; Recorder used: Mark5 #1; Label(/s): MPI-0012; VC#3 USB degraded by known L-band RFI.

Medicina (G.Maccaferri at Mon Nov 7 11:51:52 2005) Minor failures :
Power outage from 15 to 17:25. Then restart but with tape footage counter not syncronized with schedule

Westerbork (Tony Foley at Tue Nov 8 08:31:20 2005) Minor failures :
Wb used in phased array mode. Removed RT9 from array, because of delay hardware problems in one band. Also the formatter was out of sync while recabling from disk to tape, so we did a re-sync shortly before gv017b

Westerbork (Tony Foley at Tue Nov 8 08:32:41 2005) Minor failures : SCHED
Wb used in phased array mode. Also LARGE parts of the schedule (everything after 12:30 UT) out of hourangle range

Westerbork (Tony Foley at Tue Nov 8 11:19:56 2005) Minor failures :
Wb used in phased array mode. Correction to my first remark: the resync was before this experiment (GM057B) - not GV017B

Effelsberg (A. Kraus at Thu Nov 10 07:33:26 2005) Success :

Jodrell_Bank (Alastair Gunn at Thu Nov 10 12:41:46 2005) Success :
The Lovell Telescope was used. No known problems.
