Overall status: Move to A configuration began this morning; 4-band dipoles in place through the 15th (ongoing issues as described last week); correlator good to 63/64 BlB pairs. Some ongoing issues with missing first scans (recoverable). Report from AAS. Summer students begin arriving. PEPs due for science staff.

Hardware status and updates (Langley, Perley, Rupen)
Antennas: EA18 pushed to 6 Jun (rolled into A configuration move). EA21 next in.
Receivers: EA05 Ku; EA12 X due this week
Calibration (Perley): Ongoing investigation into the switched power compression/expansion.
Notes (Rupen/Sowinski): 3-bit testing review (Dhawan). V stokes data taken (high frequency data pushed). Bent-pin; BlB shuffle ready for this afternoon (2 hours for Kerry).
Notes: Status report and Ka/S update: 32 and 37 GHz observations available for 3C138, 3C147, 3C48 (3C286 by the end of the week); currently the information is put on the web (rather than added directly to CASA/AIPS; after A configuration data is added, it will be added directly. S band is not yet available.
