The Hobart26m uses the DBBC backend for these experiments rather than the mk5 rack. Unfortunately, the FS only supports controlling one “rack” at a time, so you need to edit configuration files and restart the FS to swap between the backends. There are some instructions included below.

  • On hobart, terminate the FS and then run the following commands:
    1. cp /usr2/control/mk5ad.mk5ho.ctl /usr2/control/mk5ad.ctl
    2. cp /usr2/control/equip.dbbc2.1gbps.ctl /usr2/control/equip.ctl
  • Restart the FS with fs and then check that the correct mark5 is selected with
    1. mk5=dot? - this should return a “normal” response, as for the AuScope antennas.
  • Load the procedure as per normal and make sure that there are no errors reported by the FS.
