-Phases tracking ok with time on a given source, ​but pcal solutions are only valid for that particular region of the sky. Need to be solved again after slewing to a new source. Will check effect on correlated visibilities,​ but in future this should probably be automatically scheduled at the start of each scan in v252. Almost all targets are sufficiently bright and compact for this to work. It is not required if a new source is close on the sky to the previous source (e.g. PKS 0405-385 and PKS 0426-380). Manual pcals are too much effort for an observer who is looking after multiple telescopes.
