TGBT14A_902_2 - DIBAS tests

Goals

  • test M&C / DIBAS observing scripts in advance of night-time observing

Details

  • start at 10:00am. Everyone gets logged in, etc
  • running obsDibasMode1OnOffBankA
  • scan 1: attempt to run through Astrid / DIBAS software. Fails to start DIBAS - abort
  • scan 2: fails
  • scan 3: fails
  • scan 4: fails
  • scan 5: works, but stops after 30 secs due to short SCANLEN in DIBAS software 2014_02_06_16:05:26A.fits
  • scan 6: On 2014_02_06_16:07:44A.fits
  • scan 7: Off (don't think these have correct scan numbers in them...) 2014_02_06_16:09:10A.fits
    • all data in the FITS file are zeros (although DMJD increments)
  • scan 8 On (mislabeled by DIBAS) 2014_02_06_16:33:52A.fits
  • scan 9 Off (mislabeled by DIBAS) 2014_02_06_16:35:02A.fits - INTEGRAT column is messed up
  • scan 10 On 2014_02_06_16:40:05A.fits
  • scan 11 Off 2014_02_06_16:41:15A.fits - correct scan number but INTEGRAT still messed up
  • Ray looks at something...
  • scan 12 On - abort this. Ray had got the switching signals wrong
  • scan 13 - data gets written to junk directory
  • scan 16 Mode 10 On - 2014_02_06_18:03:01A.fits - first integration looks very funky
  • scan 17 mode 10 Off - 2014_02_06_18:04:11A.fits - first integration looks very funky
  • scan 18 mode 20 On - 2014_02_06_18:15:53A.fits - first integration looks funky
  • scan 19 mode 20 Off - 2014_02_06_18:17:05A.fits - first integration looks funky
