 Parkes antenna control is via a command line program called atsnap. atsnap will run a simple schedule and can take commands to stow/unstow the antenna etc. IF setup is done seperately - normal observers would not normally worry about this. Attenuation is done via the "​loGUI"​ software. The VLBI backend consists of two "LBA DAS" which sample and filter the IF and the LBADR recorder which captures the sampled data, formats it in software and writes to local or remote disk (or streams for eVLBI). The DAS setup is controlled via the "DAS GUI" and the recorder via "​cdisko2"​. ​ These are the same for ATCA, Parkes and Mopra and some documentation is available at: Parkes antenna control is via a command line program called atsnap. atsnap will run a simple schedule and can take commands to stow/unstow the antenna etc. IF setup is done seperately - normal observers would not normally worry about this.
