LBA Schedule and Observing Roster for Hobart, November 2013

Useful links:

Session Notes:

  • Hobart observers must operate Ceduna for the last 26 hours of LBA week. Jamie and Yurii will be at Ceduna for the remaining time.
  • AuScope telescopes are not participating in this session.
  • 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.

Note that there are no longer any separate fringechecks (except for Simon’s frequency swapping experiment). The fringecheck has been incorporated into the main schedule with the first 30–60 minutes tracking a strong fringe-finder.
