Hobart 12m:

Disk VSN: HOB+0120

Data volume at beginning: 21130.8

  • 19:00UT Experiment started okay. (AK)
  • 10:20UT - ERROR st -27 Computer ACU time difference exceeded 0.25 seconds continuously experienced for 1 minute then fixed itself. Probably a network issue. (Ellen)
  • 11:30UT - Since doing the last checklist the delay difference seems to be slowly drifting although it seems to have levelled out for the moment. Will keep a close eye on it. (Ellen)

Hobart 26m:

Disk VSN:HOB+1010

Data volume at beginning:0

  • 19:00UT Experiment started okay. (AK)
  • 04:22UT Hobart has been recording less data than scheduled throughout the experiment at an average rate of 17GB per hour (Ross).
  • 09:57UT - Disc pos ~240 GB behind (is supposed to be close to 1400 GB total). Jamie has fixed something so that the scans are losing 1s at the beginning instead of 5-6s. So it should lose data more slowly now. (Ellen)

* 11:30UT - Disc pos is now 250 GB behind so appears to be losing data more slowly now. (Ellen)
