Setup and fringe checks. Same setup as v131au. Please can you be on source by 11:30 UT. I have set the schedule to start at 08:00 UT in case you want to do local tests early.

This is a disk based experiment, but sending the data through the S2.

For this setup please check:

- S2 C2a output is connected to the VSIC via the BG2 cable - S2 uic feedthru is enabled (“uic feedthru on” on the S2)

- Record on the MRO recorders using the vsic_record program. The exact

 syntax depends on the S2 mode (ie whether you are using the buggary
 cable or not).

Buggary cable *in* (S2 mode 32×4-2) > vsib_record -t 30000s -o vt002b1_Ant -c ooxx

Buggary cable *out* (S2 mode 32a4-2) > vsib_record -t 30000s -o vt002b1_Ant -c oxox

Please create a directory for the the data before you start. At the end of the fringe test, the data can be deleted.

If you have questions, please call Chris on 02 67904031
