LBA Schedule and Observing Roster for Hobart, March 2013

Useful links:

Session Notes:

  • Brett will help monitor Hobart during the working day on Thursday/Friday, but the observer should be prepared to help with experiment setup etc.
  • Hobart observers must operate Ceduna (with disk change/setup change assistance from Bev for all experiments through to v256c)
  • Vasaant + Brett will take over Ceduna setup from Monday onwards, but monitoring will continue from Hobart
  • Katherine to participate in 8.4 GHz experiments, operated by Hobart observers (will be run from a VNC window on newsmerd). Documentation here
  • Please remember to stick a post-it note with the experiment name on the disks when you remove them!
  • 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.)

Observing & Monitoring Checklists:

Observing setup checklist for Hobart and Ceduna can be found here.
