-  * For mixed mode observations (AUA/AUM/AOV experiments), this can now be done from the standard slogit scripts. Please use either <code>schedules $exper hb ke</code> to download and drudg the schedues. Alternatively <code>slogit.auscope.sh $exper $station</code> will also work. When you are asked to check the prc files, please make sure that the values for bbcs017-032 are is the range of 2200-2950 MHz and bbc001-bbc012 are in the range of 300-450 MHz. These correspond to the X- and S-band frequencies, observing at dual linear polarisations.+  * For mixed mode observations (AUA/AUM/AOV experiments), this can now be done from the standard slogit scripts.
