Shanghai (Bo Xia at Wed Oct 29 12:08:25 2008) Minor failures : FORM RECO
from UT 6:56:22 to UT 8:34:50 Formatter was failing the synch test.(we typed the gpstime command).At UT 8:20,the pointer of the mk5 was not increaing,so we restarted the mk5 pc.After UT 8:43,the mk5 was okay.

Urumqi (LiPeng at Wed Oct 29 12:25:04 2008) Success :

Medicina (Roda at Wed Oct 29 12:40:08 2008) Minor failures : RECO
More scan not recorded because module problem. It cause Mark 5 hang-up. After replaced of module it is ok. moreover vc 1, 2, 7, 8, was out of band.

Onsala (Michael Lindvist at Wed Oct 29 13:33:13 2008) Success :
Some rain. Still quite windy. Two Mark 5 errors: 2008.303.02:43:12.34?ERROR m5 -900 Previous recording still active 2008.303.02:43:12.34?ERROR m5 -906 MARK5 return code 6: inconsistent or conflicting request 2008.303.03:16:21.31?ERROR m5 -900 Previous recording still active 2008.303.03:16:21.31?ERROR m5 -906 MARK5 return code 6: inconsistent or conflicting request Otherwise no known problems.

Westerbork (Geert Kuper at Wed Oct 29 13:50:29 2008) Success : ANT FS
Wb used in phased array mode. At 2008-303.07:51 the FS-time suddenly changed to 2007-171.05:25 I had to reboot the fs-computer to fix it. Recording again at 09:09 Another problem happened later. The backend failed from 09:58 till 10:45. For the rest no known problems

Effelsberg (Uwe Bach at Wed Oct 29 14:45:09 2008) Minor failures : FS
Still problems with the antenna control computer: lost some scan from 7:15 to 7:20, 7:55 to 8:42, and 9:07 to 9:43 UT. During the last stop the affected hardware was changed and the problem is hopefully solved now.

Torun (Kaz Borkowski at Thu Oct 30 07:46:04 2008) Success :
