Handover notes

Please use this page to write up any notes on anything that needs to be passed on to the next observer or should go into the end of experiment message.

Notes should be placed below the horizontal line as a new blog entry.

Continuing problems should be copied to the Current Issues page.

Be sure to add any specific notes about the experiment if required, for example “Special back end configuration for x reason”. Put as much detail as you can - the more the better.

It is ESSENTIAL to put your name after EVERY entry. Copy and paste the template into the new handover notes

Experiment Started Ok.

2300 UT - Schedule halted - wrong recorder in use (flexbuffyg, not mk5yg). Restarted with “fs” rather than “fs-flexbuff” as was running, restarted DBBCyg with v104_2 software. Data prior to this time is recorded in VDIF format on flexbuffyg and apparently valid. (JMc)

2116 UT - First data recorded to mark5B. Back on schedule. (JMc)


Experiment Started Ok.

1303UT - Someone left a message on the oprin saying scan 142-0215 missed? (Lim)

1330UT - Missed scan 142-1314 and 142-1323 due to fs froze. I am almost certain that the fs will crash upon submitting the econtrol checklist (Lim).
