R1 and R4 are the IVS “Rapid” experiments meaning their turnaroud time (from observation to the ready product) should be less than 15 days. They supply fast EOP results. More about rapids can be found here: http://ivscc.gsfc.nasa.gov/program/descrip2011.html#r1
AuScope normally observes R1's on Tuesdays.
