Schedule Checking

Check the following:

  • Correct start/stop time
  • Polarizations/IFs match the block schedule
  • All stations on the block schedule are included
  • Standard frequency
  • Scans not too short (ATCA looses 30sec on scan change).
  • Scans aligned with 10sec boundary (for ATCA)
  • Sources not set at too many stations at any time (elevation)
  • Slew times not too long (very long or longer than scan)
  • Fringe finders listed

One way to check all of this is (as vlbi on ATNF unix machines):

> exper.skd

> exper.skd

> less exper.sum
