-\\ + 
---\\ +Data being recorded to first set of Xraid disks as labeled: /data/xraid0. Interestingly this is the right-hand bank of disks.

-====== Tidbinbilla Setup notes for V189a\\ ====== +Data recorded as follows: 
-\\ + 
-=====  Config notes\\ ===== + 09:50:00 -> 09:50:30   - duration was set to 30s, whoops! 
-  *  Centre freqs = 1650, 1682 MHz MHz\\ + 09:58:00 -> 10:27:12   Stopped to reconfigure caching settings on the Xraids 
-  *  Polarisation = LCP\\ + 10:28:00 -> end

-  *  mix to 160 MHz into DAS\\ +Notes: 
-  *  so 2nd LO for USB mix \\ + 09:50:00   On point and recording 
-    *  IFP1: 1650 - 1380 + 160 = 430 MHz\\ + 12:28:00   (approx time) IF2 unplugged briefly for a sanity check 
-    *  IFP1: 1682 - 1380 + 160 = 462 MHz\\ + 12:37:00   Antenna off point for ~ 30s for another sanity check 
-  *  DAS profile = vsop_f.pro\\ + 12:42:00   After conversation with Adam, can see no problems with the  
-\\ +            system so suspect lack of fringes to Tid is due to checking  
-\\ +            software not handling the mixture of bands and pols correctly.  
-=====  SOE\\ ===== +            Have double checked frequency setup, antenna pointing, recorder 
-====  Before the track\\ ==== +            clock etc and all looks correct.
