LBA Schedule and Observing Roster for Hobart, April 2012

Useful links:

Session Notes:

Shifts are labelled with a difficulty level.

Easy: No setup or changeover required. Monitoring only — NOVICES ONLY!!
Medium: Easy setup/changeover only.
Hard: More complex setup/changeover (recabling etc.)


Please check experiment changeover times and details in setup notes. For easy (software only) setup/changeovers, observers will set up Ceduna too. For more complex procedures that require liaising with Bev, Ceduna setup/changeover to be handled by Jo or Jamie. Confirm setup/changeover person for Ceduna here.

Contact People:

In the case of problems during observing, the designated contact people are Jamie, Jo, Stas or Jay. Available on-call people are listed in the table.
Mobile numbers are on the board in the AuScope room, and will also be mailed to observers prior to the session.

Observing & Monitoring Checklists:

Observing setup checklist for LBA (Hobart & Ceduna) can be found here.

For the v271k experiment using the S/X receiver, you cannot see a coherence tone using the DAS outputs and the 5 MHz from the maser. Instead, use the oscilloscope mounted at the top of rack 9 with the input coming from the USB port of the VCs - when the tone is radiated, you should see a stable sine-wave on the oscilloscope. The table below lists the frequency/VC pairs that should show coherence.
