 +=====  Schedule Checking =====
  
-One way to check all of this is (as vlbi on ATNF unix machines):+Check the following:
  
- > vexsum.pl exper.skd+  *  Correct start/stop time 
 +  *  Polarizations/​IFs match the block schedule 
 +  *  All stations on the block schedule are included 
 +  *  Standard frequency 
 +  *  First hour reserved for fringe finding 
 +    * Fringe finders listed 
 +  *  Fringe finder observed every few hours 
 +  *  Phase reference cycle not too long 
 +  *  Sources not set at too many stations at any time (elevation) 
 +  *  Slew times not too long (very long or longer than scan) 
 +  *  Source positions given to sufficient accuracy
  
- > makewiki.pl exper.skd+For ATCA
  
- > less exper.log+  * Scans not too short (ATCA loses 15 sec on scan change). 
 +  * Scans aligned with 5sec boundary (for ATCA) 
 +  * Encourage 1934-638 for flux calibration 
 +  * Check frequency of AUTOPHASE_DETERMINE scans 
 +  * AUTOPHASE_DETERMINE scans must have at least 1 min on 200 mJy source 
 +  * Do not AUTOPHASE_DETERMINE during the fringe finder section 
 + 
 +One way to check some of this is (as vlbi on ATNF unix machines):​ 
 + 
 +  > vexsum.pl exper.skd 
 + 
 +  > makewiki.pl exper.skd 
 + 
 +  > less exper.sum
