 + 
 +=====  Running the correlator ===== 
 + 
 +On pkvsi2, go to /​import/​bd1/​evlbi/​tests/​vt11c3/​. ​ Edit the .input file to have the correct start time (in the first table), and start 
 +the correlator with: 
 + 
 +mpirun -p4pg p4pg.pkvsigateway /​home/​vlbi/​evlbi/​correlator/​mpifxcorr/​src/​mpifxcorr /​import/​bd1/​evlbi/​tests/​vt11c3/<​input file name> 
 + 
 +Wait for the startup messages to scroll through and stop - near the end there should be some saying "​waiting for connection"​. ​ Once the correlator is waiting you can start the vsib_record processes at the observatories. ​ The start time in the correlator input file should be after the time you get all these going. 
 + 
 +If you want to add an extra antenna (eg hobart) to the array, you'll need to add an extra line to p4pg.pkvsigateway. Dupplicate the second line.  For this instance you'll obviously also need a different correlator input file.  Similarly, if for some reason we want to drop an antenna, remove the second line from p4pg.pkvsigateway.
