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.

**Template for Handover notes:**

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

Format for entering a comment It is important to stick to this formula - there is a good reason we need this information, so please include it!

Time stamp in UT * Comment * (Your Name)

For Example:

20:00UT: Wind stows, Missed scans 012-3456 to 012-3457 (Jim)

20:50UT: Mark5 lost connection, had to restart Mark5 and reconfigure DBBC, called Jamie on call to fix, missed scans 012-3456 to 012-4567 (Jim)

Again - as much detail as you can. It is important to remember that these notes will be sent to the correlator, so please make sure they make sense to others.

  • 1730UT Experiment started okay (Lim)
  • 1941UT Autocorrelation did not look gook, reprogrammed DBBC and Sync fmset after scan 176-1936, missed scans: 176-1943 and 176-1951. (Lim)
  • 2140UT formatter-gps time was constantly drifting since last dbbc reconfiguration. drifted to ~0.9us, Solved by Rebooting mk5 and dbbc. Missed scans: 176-2136, 176-2143, 176-2149(Lim)
  • 0422-0511 - Sync Error and associated 1 second offset. No obvious cause. DBBC power cycled and reconfigured. (JMc)

  • 1815UT - Getting the following error “ probably no such disk” when running checkmk5 on the new disk. Data seems to be recording onto the disk fine, and checkmk5 still completes, with autocorrs looking good. Wiki says it is safe to ignore. (Tiege)
  • 1830UT - Experiment started OK. (Tiege)
