 +====== The Station Ready email ======

 +A script is available to extract information from the schedule and log file and prepare and send a station ready email to IVS. Before sending it, you will be asked to read it and make any necessary corrections or additions.
 +Details on Tsys, SEFD and fringe checks are not currently
 +extracted from the log and so will need to be included by hand.
 +
 +To run the script, log on to ops8 and type <code>ready_message.pl</code> and follow the prompts.
