AuScope Operations Meeting Thursday 21st April, held at 12pm.

Chair: Ellen

Apologies: Nick


Current Issues

  • Problems with drive hydraulics on 26m, cancelled today's experiment (RD1603).
  • New PCFS at Hobart is working great (thanks Jamie). Has anyone had any problems?
  • Maser maintenance at both Katherine and Yarragadee currently, hence Brett is not at the Observatory. Warren is at Mt Pleasant Tuesdays to Thursdays and occasionally Mondays.
  • CRDS82 - “still getting ve error: ERROR ch -308 ve total power integrator overflow” - Bryn, what was this and was it fixed?
  • R4734 - Yarragadee: consistent offset between mark 5 and other computers of 0.1 - 0.4 visible in fmset with no sync error, could not be fixed. Caused by power failure affecting GPS receiver (new UPS installed) - had to change to Hobart's. Fixed itself 4+ hours later. Is there any way to fix this other than hope?
  • R1735 - A couple of instances where recorder started ~ 7-10 seconds before onsource at both Katherine and Yarragadee.
  • High system temperatures - run systemp12 again to make sure it wasn't just one dodgy reading. Monitor and make note of how many scans were affected by consistent high tsys values.
  • Anything else to note?
