TU003AC was a test observation that was generated to test vlbagrb.py without the MARK5C bit in the directory. I ran it and ran ./testobs.py B1933+16 -g soln_status=4 (it shoudl have been 3 but anwyay).

It ran and calculated which antennas would be up, but when it came to convincing SCHED, SCHED complained saying FD had no scans with the source up. t2 and t5 worked, but t10, t15, t20 and t30 didn't.

TODO: Need to set something up where it parses the future time.


    Welcome to program SCHED.  Version:  11.20  Release of Jan. 22, 2014 - update 1
 
The manual is at http://www.aoc.nrao.edu/software/sched/index.html
Unix users should set $SCHED to the base area where SCHED is installed.
Most run time messages will be in sched.runlog
 
Some useful commands to give now if running interactively:
   SCHedule=<filename>    :  Specify input file.
   PLOT                   :  Invokes uv, xy, rd, and uptime plotting.
   FREQLIST=lowF,highF    :  Make frequency list (MHz).  Then exit.
   EXIT                   :  Leave program.
   /                      :  End of inputs - run program (or EXIT).

SRREAD:  Reading source catalog:  Program_input
STREAD:  Reading station catalog: /usr/local/sched/catalogs/stations_RDBE.dat
STREAD:  Reading locations file:  /usr/local/sched/catalogs/locations.dat

GETFREQ: Reading frequency file:  /usr/local/sched/catalogs/freq_RDBE.dat
INPUT:   Found    62 input scans.
SHORTN: WARNING - Source names longer than 8 characters used.
        This will be a problem if geodetic software (SOLV etc) is used.
        This might be a problem on some correlators.
 
WRTMSG: Special message from routine CHKVDIFX:
 
You have allowed the DiFX software correlator to adjust your average
time to be an integral number of input FFT intervals (and an integral
number of short-term accumulator intervals).  You did this by
specifying CORAVG without a second argument set to "EXACT".  What you
did is the default, and recommended, option.  The adjustment will be a
few percent or less in most cases, although it can get as high as
sqrt(2) for an extreme narrow bandwidth case with a large number of
spectral channels.
 
SCHOPT:  First output scan will be number     1
 
WRTMSG: Special message from routine AUTODOWN:
 
  * Stations using automatic tape allocation or disk recording systems
    are being removed from scans when the source is below the antenna
    pointing limits.  This behavior can be overridden using DODOWN.
 
SCHOPT:  There will be    62 output scans (    1 -    62) from  30/00:24:34 to  30/01:01:47
SCHTIM: There are no scans for VLBA_FD  with the source up.
 
Please add scans or take out the station.
 
+++ERROR+++ SCHED terminating
   The above is a fatal error.
