  • Waiting for sunset. Had to cycle the OCAM2K controller process and the BCU2K power a couple of times to get rid of the noisy quadrants.

  • The OCAM2K is cooled and ready.
  • Fastlink test OK.
  • Had safe skips after David applied LUSIFER.sav flat (authorized). I re-applied default.sav, which should be the same one, and the safe-skips went away.

  • The loop was stable for a while, thought we had a few loop openings during offsets.
  • We then pointed directly into the wind and the loop became unstable.
  • Moving to seeing limited now.
  • We may not resume at 4.
