LOIRP Status Report 4 September 2013

Dennis Wingo: Mid day Wednesday September 4, 2013.

The tape list is getting quite long so I have to deal with it. I made a mistake that I caught yesterday so have to incorporate that as well.....

G5-035, partial capture LOV-087H, 086H, 083H complete capture 085M (some overlap with W5-136)
G5-036, complete capture, LOV-092M, partial capture 093H
G5-037, partial capture LOV-112H, 111H, complete capture 110M
G5-038, partial capture LOV-115M, 116H, (completes 116H) (overlap with W5-122)
G5-039, partial capture LOV-114M, 115H (duplicate capture with W5-123 but did anyway as there were gaks on the W5-123 tape)
G5-040, partial capture LOV-119M (completes image, and overlaps with W5-118) also 120H (completes image and overlaps with W5-117)

We may have to recapture W5-122 as I made a mistake with the reading of that image and did not capture framelets 765-700 as I should have because I had the wrong image number listed.

G5-041, not needed, overlap W5-118, 119
G5-042, not needed, overlap W5-118
G4-043, not needed, overlap W5-042
G5-044, partial capture LOV-139M, 140H
G5-045, partial capture LOV-140H, complete capture 138M, 139H
G5-046, partial capture LOV-137M, 138H

Those are from yesterday. So far today.....

G5-047, not needed but captured partial LOV-143H (five frame lets), it is overlapped with W5-112 and 113)
G5-048, partial capture LOV-142H (several gaks due to control track problems)
G5-049, partial capture LOV-140M, complete capture 141H, 139M
G5-050, not needed overlap W5-108
G5-051, not needed overlap W5-110,-051
G5-052, not needed, duplicate W5-110,-111
G5-053, partial capture LOV-160H, 158M, 165H (ground station problems made from framelets 421-405 messy) (158M not in LPI database)
G5-054, partial capture LOV-163M, complete capture 164H

This is all so far though G5-055 is in process.

We don't know how much longer the head will last but we are pushing forward. It could fail any minute. So far now we are well over 1/3rd of the way through the Goldstone tapes, and mostly because we found this old cast away head. It is having problems with the control track so probably we won't refurbish it again so we are going to run it for all it is worth! To get half way through the Goldstone tapes we have to make it to G5-079. Keep yer fingers crossed!
