The Station Ready email

A script is available to extract information from the schedule and log file and prepare and send a station ready email to IVS. Before sending it, you will be asked to read it and make any necessary corrections or additions. Details on Tsys, SEFD and fringe checks are not currently extracted from the log and so will need to be included by hand.

To run the script, log on to ops2 and type

and follow the prompts.

Below is an example ready message:
