a) Is SPC supported at the correct level ?
b) Does ATUC consider it a priority issue to standardise and support single dish software ?
Can ATUC suggest a solution to notifying users of expired VLBI proposals ?
Does ATUC have any concerns re the possible movement of VLBI to U Tas ?
Radio Quiet Zones. Given the GreenBank experience, the management of a RQZ would require 1 FTE, does ATUC consider this is a good use of resources ?
