  • 1800UT Experiment started OK (Katie)
  • 1815UT Was getting the 'previous source not reached before new source commanded' error after every scan. Wind was low so no recent wind stows. Noticed that another fs output after every scan was 'Antenna drives not on, switching them on'. Checked the live page and drives were off.Trying using the onsource command but that did not work. Solution was to go to vdesk (type in newsmerd) then 'abort' and then 'drvon'. This clears any previous commands that the antenna gets stuck on. (Katie)
  • First scan 191-1855 (Katie).
  • 0220 - 0558 Ho26 windstowed, no useful data in this time range. (JMc)
  • 11:40UT Start windstow (Lucas).
    • 12:45UT update: Still windstowed. Wind is steady at 35km/hr with gusts up to 50 over last hour. High enough to keep in mostly constant windstow with the occasional half slew (Lucas).
