-  * **All Stations:**\\ + 
-    * There are some long slews in this experiment, and I have used dwell mode as it is a phase referencing experiment. This has caused a number of unwanted tape stop ("​et"​) commands to occur in the .snp files. Could each station please edit their .snp files to remove all occurences of the command "​et"​ EXCEPT the one that occurs before the tape change, and the one at the end of the experiment.\\ +  * **All Stations:​**

-    *  The ATCA time starts after the hour allocated for setup and fringe-checking,​ so please use the first part of the ATCA time for setting up. Parkes joins at 1130 UT, so please try to complete the setup before then. 1424-418, the phase-reference,​ is nice and bright and can be used for fringe-checking once the ATCA has started running the schedule.\\ +  * **ATCA Notes:**
