 The schedule files are written such that the same source is observed at the same sidereal time every day, so the actual schedule changes are NOT at the same UT every day and do not exactly match the IVS schedule. In order to facilitate smooth transition, each schedule must be modified well before its start to accommodate automatic start of the subsequent schedule. For that, a line must be added in the end:  The schedule files are written such that the same source is observed at the same sidereal time every day, so the actual schedule changes are NOT at the same UT every day and do not exactly match the IVS schedule.

-Below is a table summary of all schedules with start/stop times, module changes (for AuScope antennas) ​and system checks over the 15 days of AUSTRAL observing. Note that bank swaps are done by operator after the corresponding experiment has finished, and module changes are performed by local staff during the corresponding system check time.  +Below is a table summary of all schedules with start/stop times and system checks over the 15 days of AUSTRAL observing.  
-<note important>​Operators,​ if during your shift a module change occurs, please call the local staff a bit in advance and agree on exact time.</​note>​ +
-More about system check times and protocol and module changes can be found [[operations:​documentation_austral15day_overview#​system_checks|in the corresponding section below]].+

-The "​Swap?"​ column means you need to swap the module at the end of that schedule. ​ For example, at Hb, at the end of A1403, it says '​yes'​ in the column. ​ At the end of A1403, you need to change the module (usually just swap banks) +
  
 When you change the module, please put the VSN of the new module and your name in the corresponding column. ​ If you need to change modules unexpectedly,​ please also put the VSN you use for the corresponding experiment so Imogen knows where the data is and can rearrange the module schedule to compensate.  When you change the module, please put the VSN of the new module and your name in the corresponding column. ​ If you need to change modules unexpectedly,​ please also put the VSN you use for the corresponding experiment so Imogen knows where the data is and can rearrange the module schedule to compensate.
