 +In PMCC click on the "Focus Cabin Switches". Make sure "13MM Rx" and "F/C Synthesisers" are both on - see below. If F/C Synthesisers are not on, wait ~ 1min before trying to set any of the LOs.

 +==== UWB-Low  (704 MHz -- 4.032 GHz) ====
 +
 +To turn on the UWL LNAs, search for the "CS-studio" GUI on the joffrey:1 VNC session, which should look like the following image. If this is not running then it can be started from the joffrey VNC session by opening a terminal on Joffrey and typing:
 +> cd UWB
 +> /askap/default/bin/CSS uwb_obs.opi
 +
 +Click the "on" button under the LNA control and wait for all the lights to go green and read 'on'
 +
 +Turn the LNAs off when your experiment is done.

 +
 +
 +==== Multibeam  (21cm, 1.4 GHz) ====
 +
 +On the third window of Joffrey:1, find the Parkes Monitor & Control GUI. Under Receivers, click the “show->” button that is in line with the Multibeam.
 +This will bring up the MB LNA GUI.
 +
 +Select the green “On” button to turn all LNAs on. Then select the 6A LNA radio button to turn it off (it is broken).
