ATTENTION! STARTING THE 2ND PART OF GIOVANNINI
EXPERIMENT I SAW THAT THE PART A WAS OBSERVED WITH
THE CHANNEL 2 USING S BAND WHILE X BAND WAS REQUIRING. SO VC02 AND VC04 WERE CONNECTED TO THE
Onsala (Antonis Polatidis at Sat Sep 27 13:55:57 METDST 1997) Success
No known problems.
Effelsberg (dgraham at Mon Sep 29 11:54:11 METDST 1997) Minor failures
3c279 scheduled under horizon, otherwise OK
Noto (C.Trigilio at Mon Sep 29 14:23:18 METDST 1997) Minor failures
Telescope still slewing during first scan (lost). 3C279 under horizont, last scan on 3C338 with source down. No technical problem.
OAN\-Yebes (P de Vicente at Mon Sep 29 15:57:21 METDST 1997) Minor failures
The X preamplifier broke 24 hours before the observation. It was repaired
at our labs and we began the observation 4 hours later (at 18:38:40)
All scans on 3C279 were discarded
We had a continous formatter problem.
Westerbork (Tony Foley at Tue Sep 30 16:01:07 METDST 1997) Minor failures
Lots of false alarms abou tape movement
and some sources out of HA range.
System had only 1 linear polarization
(my apologies but 1 of the channels was dead,
so we could not make circular)
Calibration (Fredrik T Rantakyro at Wed Nov 5 16:04:51 MET 1997) Minor failures
The ANTAB formatted TSYS information can be found on VLBEER in the
SEP97 directory. The file is called gg032a.antab and contains the
latest antenna calibration information.
