Some wind stows. Check logs to note off source times. (Jim)
2017.013.06:14:55 ALARM: Large difference between formatter and maser delays. Check for stability of new offset. Reconfigured dbbc. This seemed to work. Hobart was wind-stowed anyway (Lucas)
10:30 UT Hobart recovered from 'wind stow'.
Antenna probably hadn't been wind stowed actually for a while. I noticed the wind speed had dropped to 7.5km/h bu the antenna hadn't recovered.
Anyway after a few resets of antenna, drives, reboots, system and no change I thought the monica data was wrong since the wind speed didn't change from 7.5km/h. This has worked for me in the past to I tried it first.
Antenna started setting off alarms due to missed scans and started trying to record data whilst stowed. Never a good sign. Solution was to:
And it was away!
First good scan after recovery 013-1039.
IMPORTANT NOTE I skimmed the logs to see where it went wrong and I think the moment it buggered up was a note that said 'auto-stow recovery failed'. From then on it got stuck in a loop of trying to stow but never getting there. Maybe this should be an alarm??
14:30 Automatic wind stow. Released on it's own. 013-1451 first scan after release.
15:20 I think monica weather server isn't working, wind data hasn't updated for a while. I needed to go up to the telescope (to put in a mv004 module) and the wind was very clearly >7.7km/h (it nearly blew me over) that the monitor system showed (Lucas)
15:30 Auto-stow released, source 1144-379, but probably not for long (Lucas)
