Release TAC Info. ToneyMinter and BarryClark report no issues importing data from the PST to PHT. Initial release of info for the Large Proposal Telecon will be 3 April. For the VLA they are still waiting on an estimate of the LST distribution fro VLASS. Currently this is assumed to be uniform. If they do not have this info in time they will just use the uniform distribution and iterate after the telecon. BarryClark noted that recently there has been less pressure near 4 hr LST for all configurations. ToneyMinter points out that the pressure is high near 4 hr LST for the GBT because of Orion/Perseus, but these are extended and not targeted as much with the VLA. We might delicately note this in the Call for Proposals.
Large Proposal Telecon. Times have been set: 7 April (Friday) 10:00-11:30 EDT, 02:30-4:00 EDT (08:00-09:30 MDT, 12:30-02:00 pm MDT). The plan is to start with ETP and ISM proposals since the respective chairs will not be available in the afternoon. Then at 11:00 EDT we will discuss the HIZ proposal. The remaining proposals will be discussed in the afternoon.
TAC f2f Meeting
Agenda (https://safe.nrao.edu/wiki/bin/view/Software/TTA17BTACAgenda). One TAC member would like to leave earlier than 2pm due to limited flights back to the East coast. BryanButler noted that there are fewer flights these days out of ABQ to the various hubs. We would probably have to finish by 11am which is too early. So far we have 3 people signed up to the VLA tour. Maximum is 8 + 1 (tour guide).
