Effelsberg (Walter Alef at Fri Oct 18 10:28:51 EDT 1996) Minor failures
Forgot to switch phase-cal on for about 20 minutes. Has to be done via field system. Default was off not on!

Weather was good, and everything seemed to go well, but... We discovered only later in logs that our formatter time jumped forwards continuously. It did not trigger any formatter internal synch error codes, though, so we expect it is simply a wrong time in formatter. We assume the jumps are integral number of exactly seconds, and that formatter 1pps synchronization has been retained all the time. Antenna tracking and recorder head positioner were okay.
