 +
 +**Actions arising**
 +
 +CARRIED FORWARD/UPDATED/CONTINUING
 +
 +  *  LBA data archive consolidation and copy at CASS. (CASS, Curtin)
 +    *  LBA data archive. Need ATNF disk space (Chris,Tasso, Shaun) ** Continuing **
 +
 +  *  ATCA Tsys via CABB (CASS) ** Updated **
 +    *  Tasso Consult with Warwick about Tsys implementation on the CABB (Tasso) 
 +
 +  *  Observer training and remote observing (Tasso) ** Continuing **
 +
 +  *  Pawsey centre access for VLBI and eVLBI (Chris, Cormac) ** Continuing **
 +
 +  *  Linear to Circular polarisation conversion. (Chris, Richard, Cormac) ** Continuing **
 +
 +  *  Monitoring "check-list" for ATNF telescopes (Chris, Jamie S) ** Continuing **
 +
 +  *  Curtin Xcube testing. Unit installed at ASKAP. Commission. (Chris, Cormac, Tasso) ** Continuing **
 +
 +  *  On-source info from ATCA. Fix cgi scripts (Chris) ** Continuing **
 +
 +  *  Get Ww FS log comments onto Wiki. Use UTas "floggit" script and automate? (Stuart, Chris, Jamie M.)
 +
 +  *  Fix recmon to track correct experiment name, especially due complex recordings for Ellingsen (Chris, Jamie S)
 +
 +  *  List Mk5 rtfc times for each observation from schedules (Cormac, Chris)
 +
 +  *  RadioAstron schedules and check setups (Chris)
 +
 +  *  Use new numbers for ATCA (4077 for DA; 4078 for Observer)
 +
 +  *  For wideband systems more efficient to stop data recording in slews/stops AND better effieciency in correlator.
 +    *  Adopt Mk5 systems?
 +
 +  *  Cd upgrades
 +    *  DAS replacement by dBBc (UTas). 
 +    *  L-band sensitivity measurements. (UTas)
 +
 +  *  Tid tests for JPL DAS and Mk5c recorder 
 +    *  Let JPL know re VDIF format (Chris)
 +    *  Web monitoring? Ports?
 +
 +
 +  *  CABB wide-band progress?
 +    *  Email Tim Bateman and get report (Tasso)
 +
 +
 +  *  Cd drive-PC. Fix in short-term. Replace long-term? (UTas)
 +
 +  *  Ensure correct wraps and limits are supported in Vex, especially for At and Mp. (ATNF, Cormac)
 +
 +  *  Setup of circ pol hybrids at Mp. Need to tweak (ATNF)
 +
 +  *  Tsys logs from Mp may be wrong if polarisation hybrid not setup properly. Need to average the 2 channels (ATNF)
 +
 +  *  Mp L-band and X-band low power and no atten to adjust. Check with Jock (ATNF)
 +
 +  *  Pks update of documentation. Polarisations are usually swapped. (ATNF, JER)
 +
 +  *  Pkvsi1 dead!  (ATNF)
 +
 +  *  Antenna positions at ASKAP. May need geodetic run for new antenna. (ATNF, JER)
 +
 +  *  Train/qualify more PIs for ATNF remote observing (ATNF)
 +
 +  *  Streamline monitoring. Check ssh tunnel setups. (Jamie + Jamie, Chris)
 +
 +
 +NEW ACTION ITEMS
 +
 +  *  GridFTP archive data to Marsfield (Chris, Cormac)
 +
 +  *  Access to Hart 15m Mark5 (Chris, Jon Quick)
 +
 +
 +STANDING ACTION ITEMS
 +
 +  *  Plan for replacements of old LBA DAS and some failing recorders.
 +    *  Plans to replace at each station (UTas, CASS)
 +
 +  *  VLBI science meeting in 2015 at Darwin/Katherine (NB. Now in 2015!!)
 +    *  Setup LOC, SOC (Tasso, Jim)
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +Next meeting: TBD
