Scheduling

  • With VieVS Satellite scheduling tool, by A. Hellerschmied
    • quasar block scheduled automatically
    • APOD scans manually scheduled
  • Schedule summary: 319a_sum.txt
  • Block of 4 strong quasars was observed before and after APOD scans
    • Min scan duration set to 40 sec
    • Sub-netting deactivated
  • See catalog files for full setup
  • 1 sec time gap in VEX files between APOD scans
    • Continuous tracking and recording
  • Min. 5 min time gap before after sat. scans to load antenna control files

Observation

  • Observers: Jamie, Lucia
  • Comments: 26m antenna was not available (no tracking). Couldn't observe the signal live on the SA (problems with internet connection)

Tracking

  • Satellite tracking based on direct AzEl input files
    • Azel values directly taken from tracking files provided by J. Sun
  • Station equipment controlled by station dependent VEX files

Data and files

  • All control files used for the observations (VEX schedules, schedule summaries, orbit files, AzEl tracking files, etc.) are provided on the VieVS server (sorts@vievs.hg.tuwien.ac.at) at /home/sorts/apod/2016/
    • Azel tracking files for all antennas (1 sec interval)
    • VEX file (station depended and combined)
    • VIE_SCHED files
      • used control + catalog files
    • predicted WGS84 state vectors (1 sec interval, by J. Sun)
    • predicted AzEl posititons (1 sec interval, by J. Sun)
    • predicted GCRF state vectors (1 sec interval, by J. Sun)
  • Results:
