Recording to ATNF V017A

DAS profile:

Clock offset: 1.55us

Reciever: 13mm
Cables: Straight through

Polarisation: 2xcircular, CROSSED!

Recorder start: 183/07:03:40
Antenna onsource: ~183/07:06:20

Observers: Aidan Hotan, Claire Hotan

183/07:30 Comments: Onsource a little late due to antenna tests of new feed, missed fringe check.
Weather: Fine, cool, ~50% mid-level cloud cover, westerly breeze 12km/hr

183/08:28: Parkes polarisations are crossed. Will correct for next experiment.

183/18:20: Weather: overcast, showers, WSW winds ~30km/hr.

183/19:52: Weather: heavily overcast, cold, damp, WSW winds ~30 km/hr.

183/21:51: Weather: ~70% low-level (though not thick) cloud, cold, WSW winds 24km/hr.

183/22:16: Evidently I'm not imagining it, cDisko just gave an error, from pkvsi1: Server Warning: Header time is offset from wall clock time by 1 seconds.
1 seconds! :)
It probably is, though, Showtel lags the AT distributed clock by 1 sec. Not sure why we didn't get any messages before now.

183/22:14: BigBuff error - 77%.

184/00:06: Weather: complete cloud cover, cold, SW winds 36km/hr!

184/01:40: Looks like we're all good! No windstows, one small cDisko crash that didn't affect recording, 1 bigbuff error… all good! Slewing to last source now.
Weather: Still overcast, wind 32km/hr WSW.
