  • 1800UT Experiment started okay (Patrick).
  • 2255-0010 Windstow (JMc)
  • Tsys values seem high, IF power apparently low. Might be an issue with amplifier gains causing loss of sensitivity. Will investigate tomorrow (JMc)

Katherine 12m

Disk VSN: flexbuffke

  • 1800UT Experiment started okay (Patrick).
  • 2300 UT - Samplers show poor statistics. Stopping to reconfigure (JMc)
  • 2312UT - Back on schedule (JMc)
  • NB - Sampler 2 statistics are “Bad”, but still getting good performance. Carrying on for now (JMc)
  • 0234 PCAL on. (JMc)
  • Sampler 3 intermittently reporting as “Bad”. Still seems ok, so not trying a reconfigure. Issue seems to be the correlation statistics near to 170E6, Will need to address this if values go below 165E6 (JMc).
  • Samplers lost lock ~1320 (JMc)
