During office hours both Ceduna and Hobart monitored and operated by Brett (on-site) & Jo, Simon & Jay at Sandy Bay.

Additional Tests & Scheduled Items

Tests are now marked on the block schedule. (Check the png version.)
All times given below are ADST. All tests use Hobart only (Ceduna idle).
Check the main VLBI wiki page for frequency setup. (No information available at time of writing.)

  1. Thursday ~10:00–12:30: ASKAP eVLBI X-band tests. Need to swap in BG3 cable.
  2. Thursday 12:30–13:30: JD & Jo configuring quad hybrid
  3. Thursday 14:30–15:30: 8 GHz student time (reconfigure for 22 GHz upon completion)
  4. Thursday 19:00–24:00: 22 GHz KVN eVLBI tests. Jo & JD to set up for these before going home. DAS profile is 16MHZ_UL_F.PRO.
  5. Friday 13:00–18:00: L-band VSIC. Same frequency as v256a.
  6. Saturday 11:00–15:00: ADST L-band GMRT tests. Jo to manage these from Sandy Bay. Quad hybrid may have to have been retuned from night before (JD). Data needs to be saved (data rate: 128 Mbps).
