-CARRIED FORWARD/​UPDATED+CARRIED FORWARD/​UPDATED/​CONTINUING 
 + 
 +  *  Consolidation of the LBA Archive to include all ATNF + Swinburne + Curtin correlated LBA data. Should also add in eVLBI output data. Maintain complete archives at Curtin and ATNF (ATNF/​Curtin) 
 +    *  ATNF to develop online access to this archive (ATNF)  
 +    *  Arrange ATOA on-line access to archive (ATNF)  
 +  *  Copy LBA data archive from Curtin to ATNF (Curtin, Chris)  
 +  *  Transfer of LBA archive from Curtin to ATNF needs route. Firewall issues? (Chris, Shaun) 
 +    *  Check with Vince re grid-ftp (Tasso, Chris) 
 +    *  Push e-VLBI archive to Curtin (Chris) 
 + 
 +  *  Phasing the ATCA  often during vlbi observations (ATNF)  
 +    *  Try automatic pcal via schedules on atca (Jamie S) 
 +    *  test time for K-band tied-array phase tests at ATCA (Jamie, Richard) 
 +    *  Implement automatic re-phasing of tied array at ATCA (Jamie, Chris) 
 +    *  Warn PIs to re-phase array in schedules. Need 2-3 mins (Phil) 
 + 
 +  *  Need to train observers for all antennas as more remote observing is anticipated (Tasso) ** continuing ** 
 + 
 +  *  Investigate Rx for Methanol at ASKAP. Very desirable and usable. (Tasso) 
 + 
 +  *  CABB test version records no Tsys. Need to fix before LBA session. Consult with WEW.(Jamie) 
 + 
 +  *  Brazil e-VLBI (Tasso) 
 + 
 +  *  VPAK transfers. Future? (Tasso) 
 +    *  Evaluate effort for data Xfers to Petabyte store. Include UTas, NZ and South Africa (Chris, Jamie, Cormac) 
 + 
 +  *  Need RTFC to Tid (Chris, Shinji) 
 +    *  Train Shinji? (Chris) 
 + 
 +  *  For Mk5 observations at Parkes 2 people are not enough. Need more observers (GA, CASS) 
 + 
 +  *  Storage needs at antennas (ATNF) 
 + 
 +  *  32 GHz VLBI tests 
 +    *  Check for frequency offsets at ATCA. Talk to engineers. (Jamie) 
 +    *  32 GHz radiator at ATCA? 
 +    *  testing? 
 + 
 +  *  Check for Cd stability improvements after fixed H-maser. (Bad internal connections?​) (Brett) 
 + 
 +  *  Commission Cd L-band system. Underway. ​ (UTas) 
 + 
 +  *  Mixed mode correlation into RTFC (Cormac, Chris) 
 + 
 +  *  MUST fill in WIKI logs for ALL observations. Lack wastes a lot of time.  (All)
  
 NEW ACTION ITEMS NEW ACTION ITEMS
  
 +  *  Check that schedules have the 8441 MHz centre frequency set at ASKAp
 +
 +  *  Schedule more fringe tests at ASKAP to monitor system stability (Tasso)
 +    *  Develop procedures for mixed-mode correlation tests (Chris, Cormac)
 +
 +  *  L-band tests with Cd for Rx commissioning
 +    *  Prepare schedules for possible Friday slots (Chris)
 +
 +  *  Develop Java-scripts for rtfc control (Chris, Jamie)
 +
 +  *  Check disks for Yd antenna for run (Jamie M)
 +    *  Check disks shipped from Curtin to Hobart (Jamie M)
 +
 +  *  Develop procedures for phase-tying at the ATCA (Jamie, Chris)
 +
 +  *  Tweak Ojha schedules for Mk5 data transfer for rtfc (Cormac, Chris)
 +
 +  *  Revised schedules to be circulated (Phil)
 +
 +  *  Check new correlator config for VLBI at ATCA (Jamie)
 +
 +  *  Check on data transfer issues
 +    *  Xfers con trolled from Curtin? (Cormac)
 +    *  Communicate with VPAK (Tasso)
