Useful links:

Session Notes:

  • Jo and Vasaant (+Brett) will be in Ceduna. Hobart observers need not operate Ceduna this time.
  • Katherine and Yarragadee to participate in 8 GHz v471b experiment. This will be handled 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 LBA can be found here.
