Onsala (A. Polatidis at Sat Sep 11 13:33:04 METDST 1999) Success
Observation went well. Unfortunately there was very strong RFI at the observing band. In addition there seems to be a TV repeater at 724-732 MHz. The continuum channels suffer most from the RFI.
Torun (K.Borkowski at Mon Sep 13 09:49:41 METDST 1999) Minor failures
Between 14:39 and 16:25 observations off source (one of antenna
control computers hang up).
Effelsberg (A. Kraus at Mon Sep 13 10:46:39 METDST 1999) Minor failures
Problems with the tape drive led to the loss of the scans between
UT2235 - UT2304 and UT2337 - UT0006. In addition, very strong RFI
Westerbork (Tony Foley at Mon Sep 13 14:38:01 METDST 1999) Minor failures
Observation went OK, but EMI problems. EMI noticable from 15:00UT
but came to saturation levels after about 20:15UT. I suspect
that data from 20:15 to 03:00 is useless
Jodrell (Alastair Gunn at Wed Sep 15 12:14:25 METDST 1999) Minor failures
Second tape failed to start at requested time, picked up on
19:30 UT scan. Strong RFI. No other known problems.
Calibration (Jean\-Francois Desmurs at Sun Nov 7 15:23:12 MET 1999) Minor failures
