NOTE: In the instructions below, replace XX with yg for Yarragadee and ke for Katherine.

  1. Print a module experiment barcode
    1. In a pcfsXX terminal window do:
      cd /usr2/log
      drudg r4497ke.log all R C     

      where R and C are the row and column numbers of the next label to go in the printer.

  2. Place the barcode and a red circle on the front of the module
  3. Screw the shipping covers on the module
  4. Pack the module in the foam within a carton
  5. Prepare a DHL Airwaybill.
    On the DHL airwaybill the important details are:
    1. account number 963246084
    2. USNO address details as before including name and phone number
    3. Value USD$200
    4. mass 10 Kg
    5. dimensions 48 X 34 X 29 cm
    6. Repair/Return
    7. ref 318-ObsCodeXX where ObsCode is the observation code (e.g. R1498) and XX is the station ID. So a valid ref for Yarragadee and experiment R1498 would be 318-r1498yg
    8. your name, signature.
    9. Katherine only:
      1. put a sheet on top, covering the airwaybill saying, “DHL Express 301 Bagot Road Coconut Grove. Hold for collection”.
  6. Prepare Customs Declarations:
    1. If you use the last Word document for Washington as a template, you would need to change:
      • filename
      • date
      • experiment name
      • airwaybill number
    2. Save and print 5 copies. Sign 3 of them and put them in a clear pocket. Put the airwaybill in on top.
    3. 1 unsigned copy of the declaration goes in the box, on top of the foam before closing the box. Last copy for your records.
  7. Please email the airwaybill number to Brett. A scan would be perfect if you can.
  8. Please update the inventory of module VSNs (eg usn-0030/2000/1024) on the Google doc. Here is the link:
