  • 20A
    • Science Program. DanaBalser reported that this is now published.
    • Set Public Bit. RickLively will communicate with ToneyMinter to make sure the total time is transfered for the GBT and then he will set the public bit. There are two issues:
      1. A script, originally designed for DDT, is used to transfer the total time. We should clean this up for general purpose.
      2. We need a way to transfer the time for each scheduling priority. There is a ticket for this item but RickLively will raise the priority on this work. We need this for metrics.
    • Update Active Triggered/Large. AmyMioduszewski reported that these have been updated. Technically the 20A Triggered proposals have not yet been included since they are not active until 20A starts.
    • ENews Article. DanaBalser reported that the article has been sent to MarkAdams.
  • 20B
    • Timeline. We agreed to move the Large Proposal telecon from 10 April (an AUI holiday) to 9 April. AmyMioduszewski will look over the timeline and provide any feedback today.
    • CfP. DanaBalser reported that the CfP template is available. He has updated the Introduction, News & Opportunity, and Joint Proposal sections. The text needs to be finalized by 16 December.
    • PST CfP Items. RickLively reported that most of the high priority items are done. The plan is to do a final deploy on Friday and then he will clean things up when he returns. We discussed the following:
      • SSA-5867 PST 20B: VLA 4/P-band: Need to resolve this for pulsar mode.
      • SSA-5733 GOST 20B bug fix: This may require 2 weeks of effort and therefore not be done.
      • SSA-5860 PST 20B: VLA LST/elevation error: There are two issues: (1) The user can have a zero length session which provides a validation warning (not error) and therefore can be propagated to the PHT. RickLively will investigate adding an error during session creation or to change the validation warning to an error. (2) When there are multiple sources we sometimes get a validation warning about a negative elelvation limit which makes no sense. RickLively will send the equations used to MarkClaussen to check.
      • SSA-5822 Make "Elevation" and "Season" blank by default in ECT: Not worth doing.
      • SSA-6029 Updates to tSys table for 20B: New ticket that should get done today.
    • SRP/TAC Recruitment. MarkClaussen reported a possible candidate for the GWT SRP chair. MarkClaussen and AmyMioduszewski reported the following status for SPR member vacancies:
      • HIZ (1 vacancy) Filled.
      • NGA (2 vacancies) Offers sent.
      • EGS (4 vacancies) One standing SRP member will continue.
      • AGN (2 vacancies /1 supplemental) Working on names.
      • ISM (1 vacancy) Working on names.
      • SFM (1 vacancy) Working on names.
      • SSP (3 vacancies) Working on names.
      • GWT (1 vacancies) Two if chair is selected from panel. Working on names.
      • PCO (2 vacancies) Working on names.
  • AOB
    • Logistics: The echo with the new Polycom system happened again with GarethHunt. He will provide info to DanaBalser who will submitt a helpdesk ticket.
    • TTA Meeting: No meeting next week.
