Yarragadee pointing

Pointing observations made at X-band, on 9/5/11 after the R4481 experiment. Measured pointing offsets of ~0.08 degrees in El (no significant offset in X-El) on 1921-293 (Az,El = -100, 44) and ~0.1 degrees in EL and ~0.05 degrees in X-El on 30 DOR (Az,El = 156,23). The pointing errors are causing a loss of ~50% of the power at X-band. The pointing errors measured on 5/5/11 previous to R4481 showed no significant errors (<0.03 degrees in El) on Northern sources with slightly worse pointing for Southern sources (~0.05 degrees).
