Session Notes:

  • Simon, Yurii and Liza are managing the session, please contact them in case of any difficulty
  • Hobart observers must operate Ceduna. The wind speed monitor is only working intermittently (if the antenna_monitor on the pcfscd VNC session has sensible temperature, then the wind speed is correct, if it reads −50 then it isn’t working). If there are any problems with Ceduna that can’t be fixed remotely, contact Bev on 0428 252 195
  • Hobart observers operate Hobart 26m: remotely during the day time when Brett is at site, and from Mt. Pleasant control room during night time and when Brett is away (dates still to be clarified).
  • Hobart is being controlled through newsmerd VNC on display :1 (port 5901) and Ceduna through pcfscd VNC on display :0 (port 5900).
  • For Hobart VNC session Skype chat is in virtual display 1 ; cdisko, oscillator_gui, Folly, OTTER are all in virtual display 3 and pcfs is in display 5
  • For Ceduna VNC session cdisko, DAS, pcfs are all in the left-top virtual display and oscillator_gui, Folly interface are in the centre-top virtual display.
  • Don’t forget to update the ATNF wiki for each experiment. Bare minimum is frequencies, DAS profile and disks. Add any other relevant information. (See past entries for reference.)
  • Every observer please identify yourself and your physical location (AuScope Room or Mt Pleasant) in Skype chat during your shift; when going to sleep, please write your mobile phone number.
  • Please remember to stick a sticky label note with the experiment name on the disks when you remove them!
  • AuScope telescopes are not participating in this session (they are primarily doing geodetic observations at the same time)
