  6. Review current issues: CICADAGreenBankSpectrometerCurrentIssues

Meeting notes:

  1. Status of ADC calibration - Hong has finished and provided a tarball and procedure. Randy,Jason, John to meet and send questions to Hong. Then do the rest of the ADCs and determine how to apply fixes.
  2. “Mode 19” issue [Also mode 24] - one or two spectra are missing. Needs additional testing, hopefully during the Tuesday maintenance period (14:00 - 16:30). # filter taps indicate a different number of blanking clock ticks than currently implemented per spec. New spec needs to be experimentally derived.
  3. VEGAS Bank F / H issue - Amanda had a problem with "F" and later Anish had a problem with "H". Galen is investigating the issues
  4. VEGAS displays - vegasdm, the vegas data display, and maybe CLEO, and how they all fit together. There seems to be some confusion about where features are implemented. First round vegasdm specs are understood. Will the Vegas data display subsume what vegasdm currently displays? Continue to implement immediate needs and look at merging after first iteration.
  5. VEGAS test scheduling - Tuesday time is booked. Thursday is available. This VEGAS meeting should divide up all available time which Richard will request in weekly Monday maintenance meeting.
