|+||====== Wind stow recovery and 0-360 Az tracking ======|
|+||Modifications from Ed Himwich to 12m Field System software have been made to fix issues with the antenna recovering from a wind stow. Testing was successful and changes have been propagated by Ed to all three sites.|
|+||Also tests on the Hobart 12m were made to check if the antenna behaves when tracking through Az=0. Field system was given a source command that put it at a small positive Az (sky //and// actual coordinates) and then observed as coordinates went through and past Az=360. No problems noticed and this was also tested with 1 deg offsets in Az and El in case there were problems when an offset was implemented.|
