Comments:

The purpose of these observations is to obtain an epoch of proper motion/parallax for G287.371, G291.274, G316.64, G316.84, G345.01, G345.00 and some observations of NGC6334F (which has shown an unusual flare).

The G287.371 observations should show a modest peak at a sky frequency of 6668.23 MHz. The G291.274 observations should show a modest peak at a sky frequency around 6669.82 MHz. The G316.64 and G316.84 observations should show a peak at a sky frequency of around 6668.54 and 6669.09 respectively, G345.01 and G345.00 should show peaks at sky frequencies of 6668.54 and 6668.57 MHz and NGC6334F should show a strong peak at 6668.32 MHz during these observations.

During the ICRF runs we have sometimes had to exclude certain antennas from observations of some sources in order to get a good spread of azimuths and elevations. Observing comments for each antenna:

Hobart, Ceduna :

The level into IF#1 will change significantly between the two setups. Set the level into the DAS so that it is within range for both setups. Setup the system temperature measurement so that it works for both IFs for the v255z.5cm setup. Please don't change the attenuation into the DAS when the setup changes as that may change the delay.

ATCA :

For the ATCA please phase-up antennas CA01 through CA05 for this experiment.
