Comments:

First part of test is local eVLBI Mopra-Hobart to test local setups.

The main part of the test is an evlbi experiment to JIVE. JIVE will control the recorder remotely. A mark5 emulator is needed for this to work. This is simply run (on the LBADR recorders) as:

> mk5emu.pl

This can be started well before the beginning of run and does not have to be stopped at the end - though it would be advisable to stop before the recorder is used for anything else.

mk5emu.pl has the setup hardcoded. It will need to be modified if the setup changes. Specifically the following lines will be set:

Mopra

my $chans = 'xxxx'; my $bandwidth = 16; my $vsib_mode = 2;

Hobart

my $chans = 'oxox'; my $bandwidth = 16; my $vsib_mode = 3;
