VEGAS Tests - September 16 2013

Goals

  • Test mode 4

Details

  • 10:15 get logged in and set up - use session 13
  • 10:30 - Ray copies over the scripts
  • Using very latest (as of a few minutes ago) BOF from Glenn Jones.
  • Scans 1-3 peak/focus on 3C227 - aborted on Scan 3
  • Scans 4-8 peak/focus on 3C227 - focus fails
  • Scan 9 Lmode4specfreswTone - with no tone
  • Scan 10 ditto - forgot to comment out configure
  • Scan 11 ditto with tone at 1470 @ -10dBm - looks like tone appears at 1370 - flipped sideband?
  • Scan 12 ditto with tone at 1445 @ -10dBm - three lines, at 1397.002, 1463.0 and 1493.001 - not sure what is going on here...

  • Switch to C-band
  • Scan 13-17 peak/focus on 0217+7349
  • Scan 18/19 - Cmode4specOffOnRRL - 6 min integration on W3. No sign of RRL, and bandpass/baseline is bizarre
  • Ray reverts to previous BOF (rev 108)
  • Scan 18/19 - Cmode4specOffOnRRL - 6 min integration on W3 with previous BOF
  • Glenn manually changes digital gain (how?) but we decide to give the time back to regular observing - stop at 12:25pm
