Maser Status Check

Check the “Standard VCH-1005A Manager” display on the Windows PC. After the maintenance in 2016 the masers run on separate locations. they can be viewed with the following commands in a terminal:


for Hobart


for Katherine, and


for Yarragadee. The passwords are NOT the normal one.

Green numbers are good, red are bad. New: check the connection status: in the lower window “Get Maser State”, look for the “OK” and check whether the OK was received within the last minute (should update several time a minute).

Here's an example of how it should look:

Report any red numbers to Brett ASAP. if you see mention of 'Battery', the maser has lost mains power and is running on it's UPS. If so, tell Brett immediately.
