telescope time allocation
Preliminary allocations for the following months:
If there are "empty" slots in the preliminary schedules, they will
most likely be GIX project time.
Preliminary future reservations:
- Solar observations: a couple of maps on each GIX day.
Starting after Easter, approximately
three days a week (usually Tue-Thu) dedicated for Solar observations.
- mm-VLBI (GMVA): Receiver tests will be
scheduled immediately when needed.
In 2014: Session I: 22 May - 28 May 2014, Session II: 25 Sep - 29 Sep 2014 Mh will not
2014: Session II:
29 May - 19 June (22 GHz 17.-19.6.), Session III: 16 Oct - 6 Nov.
- Geo-VLBI in 2014: ... JUN24, AUG19,
AUG20, SEP16, NOV11 (+ receiver changes).
- Maintenance: new counter-weight system re-installation at some point.
Note: The schedules can change upon a short notice due to
changing demands (multifrequency campaigns, tests etc.)
