Katherine To Do

  • Phase cal testing (temperature stabilisation? Bad filters?)
  • DBBC service - check cables, internal connections, bad boards)
    • Apparently working as of 25/7/14 after replacing Fila OUT, reseating stack & PCI7200 card & cables.
  • earthing of DBBC and MK5 units using proper earth connections
  • DBBC cont cal - tune for ~2-5% CONT CAL, 5-10% pulsed CAL
    • CONT CAL seems to be triggered when PULSED CAL is? Check wiring on spare board?
  • Y-factor tests - get all CAL factors via DBBC.
  • control room temp sensors - MoniCA * twister cable suspender * <del>fix UPS
  • pedestal and maser room fan, fix/replace
  • webcam clean
  • Upgrade mk5-2ke. Replace module back plane * <del>Back up all PCs * <del>Maser service.
  • tidy ptz wiring * <del>clean all sky cam lens
  • check for rodents in genset
  • generator battery charger reduce electrolyte boiling
  • feed temp/press sensor
  • weed control
  • insect proofing of the hub
  • pedestal base flange seal, recoat with paving paint
  • grooves in concrete foundation to promote drainage
  • remove rust from container and paint
  • Feed tube
    • test
  • Hub
    • Look at antenna step-response with CTScope
    • Replace fan on RF box
  • Pedestal
    • Evict wildlife
    • drain spare conduit
    • Modify controller setting to accept remote resets, and test
  • Antenna structure

    • Check all four signals are getting through and bandpasses look reasonable
      • any signs of RFI?
      • Are cable compensators doing a reasonable job?
    • look for phase-cal tones at S and X. About the right level?
    • look for noise diode, check its strength
    • check that a tone can be put through the system
    • measure Y-factors at all four bands, calculate Tsys
    • Attempt to detect a bright source
      • Jim to provide list of precessed source coordinates
      • Determine gross pointing offsets and obtain a zeroth-order model (Jim)
    • Measure SEFD at all bands. Should be ~2500 Jy
    • Fringe check to Hobart
