    General comments:

    Whole session:

    • Ys has (as usual) observed  LCP only
    • Pt has fringes only in parts of the experiment and only to a few stations

    ALMA-mode:

    • MH no fringes. Strange AC indicating error in setup of firmware. MH has a rare DBBC setup.
    • Pv: used 32 MHz PFB by mistake. Not included in first run with 58 MHz sub-bands.
    • Ys fringes in MB007. Seems to have used 32 MHz PFB in other 2 observations.
    • ALMA: first time with GMVA and good fringes
    • A 2nd correlation pass was done to recover Pv and Ys: requires experimental zoom-mode and stitching of sub-bands to 58 MHz. More info under mg002.
    • 3 correlations done:
      • 58 MHz sub-bands (defined by ALMA sub-bands). No Pv and Ys data included
      • 32 MHz sub-bands to match Pv and Ys setup, correlated with all stations
      • different "zoom-bands" which cut good pieces of ALMA mode and 32 MHz mode. Has to be stitched together by new task written by J. Wagner to form again 58 MHz sub-bands. This is tranparent to the users. Correlated with all stations.

    For the ALMA mode experiments some stations recorded data in the wrong mode, using PFB instead of the full band mode. Could be related to a bug in the FS, which did not recognize the command dbbc=dbbcform=full_auto.
    Correlator team will try to glue the PFB bands together so that at least part of the data can be recovered.
    Appart form the above of MH also did have a firmware problem. Therefore the Alma mode data from this station are likely to be unusable. edited 14:44, 20 Jul 2017
