[2018/01/28 22:42:04 UTC] <Pei-ops> jemmett-GV, looks like you will have to wait until pass 48S for your sonde?
[2018/01/28 22:42:16 UTC] <Pei-ops> Judging from the satellite overlay...
[2018/01/28 22:44:31 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Pei-ops, yep, we already discussed that.  Hopefully by 48, there will be some clearing.
[2018/01/28 22:44:40 UTC] <jemmett-GV> starting engines
[2018/01/28 22:48:26 UTC] <jemmett-GV> taxiing
[2018/01/28 22:52:02 UTC] <jemmett-GV> tx V, rx HV, Zenith Pointing
[2018/01/28 22:53:07 UTC] <jemmett-GV> 5 sec drop
[2018/01/28 22:53:49 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Takeoff
[2018/01/28 22:58:18 UTC] <jemmett-GV> HSRL on, Zenith pointing
[2018/01/28 22:59:47 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Nadir pointing
[2018/01/28 23:00:24 UTC] <jemmett-GV> not seeing anything on below us, switching back to zenith
[2018/01/28 23:01:35 UTC] <jemmett-GV> in clouds, switching to nadir
[2018/01/28 23:02:58 UTC] <jemmett-GV> HSRL Nadir pointing
[2018/01/28 23:03:32 UTC] <jemmett-GV> 5 sec drop
[2018/01/28 23:11:21 UTC] <ChrisBurghart-ops> jemmett-GV, have you seen data issues on HSRL when you change pointing?
[2018/01/28 23:11:57 UTC] <ChrisBurghart-ops> The 22:55 and 23:00 images here show big data smears/gaps after pointing changes.
[2018/01/28 23:12:45 UTC] <jemmett-GV> ChrisBurghart-ops, the shutter interlock did not open.  Forgot to check it with my hand.  Missed about 2 minutes.  Working ok now.
[2018/01/28 23:15:18 UTC] <jemmett-GV> velocity pillars, we are in some turbulence.
[2018/01/28 23:16:10 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Vr average is slightly positive
[2018/01/28 23:16:58 UTC] <ChrisBurghart-ops> Agreed. I'm really happy with the amount of gray I'm seeing, though.
[2018/01/28 23:38:20 UTC] <ChrisBurghart-ops> jemmett-GV, looks like the INS may have drifted. Can you request an s-turn?
[2018/01/28 23:42:00 UTC] <jemmett-GV> started slow scan 168-172 x .05deg/sec
[2018/01/28 23:42:48 UTC] <jemmett-GV> started slow scan 1188-192 x .05deg/sec
[2018/01/28 23:43:34 UTC] <jemmett-GV> calibration complete, nadir pointing
[2018/01/28 23:45:00 UTC] <jemmett-GV> 23:38:15 started fast scan 160-200 x 3.0deg/sec
[2018/01/28 23:46:40 UTC] <jemmett-GV> ChrisBurghart-ops, Vr is looking better now.  No S-turn required. Almost all grey.
[2018/01/29 00:03:31 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Pei-ops, If you haven't already, one thing to add to the instruction list is to restart "Follow hcrdrx log" and "Follow USB Archiving" after 00:00 UTC.
[2018/01/29 00:08:59 UTC] <ChrisBurghart-ops> jemmett-GV, Did you notice ocean surface condition while you did the scanning?
[2018/01/29 00:13:07 UTC] <jemmett-GV> ChrisBurghart-ops, i didn't, had my window shade down because of the glare.
[2018/01/29 00:14:03 UTC] <ChrisBurghart-ops> 5s drop back at 00:05:40
[2018/01/29 00:15:44 UTC] <jemmett-GV> 15:15, 5 sec drop
[2018/01/29 00:21:27 UTC] <jemmett-GV> surface appears to be pretty calm
[2018/01/29 00:22:45 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Vr biasing slightly negative
[2018/01/29 00:23:33 UTC] <ChrisBurghart-ops> Yep. S-turn?
[2018/01/29 00:24:49 UTC] <jemmett-GV> requesting now
[2018/01/29 00:24:58 UTC] <jemmett-GV> turning now
[2018/01/29 00:25:22 UTC] <jemmett-GV> S-turns
[2018/01/29 00:30:01 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Vr looking better.  Almost a little more positive now.
[2018/01/29 00:30:42 UTC] <ChrisBurghart-ops> Seems to work every time.
[2018/01/29 00:40:02 UTC] <jemmett-GV> I was watching the PMC-730 details window when we got a 5 sec drop.  I noticed that we got EMS errors while it was not transmitting.
[2018/01/29 00:52:49 UTC] <jemmett-GV> sea surface is looking a little more rough out there now.
[2018/01/29 00:53:51 UTC] <jemmett-GV> noticing more variability in the surface Vr.
[2018/01/29 01:22:04 UTC] <jemmett-GV> descending
[2018/01/29 01:32:19 UTC] <jemmett-GV> start 10min leg above cloud 3ish min ago
[2018/01/29 01:39:08 UTC] <jemmett-GV> hitting cloud tops, climbing.
[2018/01/29 01:44:54 UTC] <jemmett-GV> turning back north
[2018/01/29 01:46:33 UTC] <jemmett-GV> start in cloud 10 min leg
[2018/01/29 01:48:55 UTC] <jemmett-GV> icing
[2018/01/29 01:51:46 UTC] <jemmett-GV> heading down
[2018/01/29 01:54:17 UTC] <jemmett-GV> zenith pointing
[2018/01/29 01:54:53 UTC] <jemmett-GV> started 10 min below cloud leg
[2018/01/29 02:04:23 UTC] <jemmett-GV> going to do sawtooth legs
[2018/01/29 02:15:57 UTC] <jemmett-GV> dropping down
[2018/01/29 02:24:57 UTC] <jemmett-GV> nadir pointing
[2018/01/29 02:43:19 UTC] <jemmett-GV> heading down to 500 ft
[2018/01/29 02:45:30 UTC] <jemmett-GV> zenith pointing
[2018/01/29 03:01:23 UTC] <jemmett-GV> climbing to 7,000 ft
[2018/01/29 03:04:24 UTC] <jemmett-GV> nadir pointing
[2018/01/29 03:29:39 UTC] <Pei-ops> jemmett-GV, when you get a chance, can you read me the CMU operating values from the front panel? Body current and collector current
[2018/01/29 03:31:44 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Pei-iPhone_, Cathode Voltage = 14.9 kV, Body Current = 0.8mA, Collector Current = 3.2 mA, Transmitter Temp. = 34.8 C
[2018/01/29 03:32:12 UTC] <Pei-ops> jemmett-GV, did you get all these numbers from the GUI?
[2018/01/29 03:32:33 UTC] <Pei-ops> Please confirm that you don't see cathode voltage on the front panel of CMU?
[2018/01/29 03:33:11 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Pei-iPhone_, Yes, by selects the details in the Transmitter icon/tab thingy
[2018/01/29 03:34:32 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Pei-iPhone_, Body current, Collector current and Temp are on the panel of the CMU
[2018/01/29 03:35:04 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Pei-iPhone_, Correct, I do see the Cathode voltage on the CMU front panel.
[2018/01/29 03:44:52 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Vr is biased negative.  Put in request for S-turns
[2018/01/29 03:49:12 UTC] <jemmett-GV> ChrisBurghart-ops, the pilots are working on a plan with ATC to change our flight plan.  Hopefully soon.
[2018/01/29 03:49:44 UTC] <jemmett-GV> we are going to try and sample the front that is coming through.
[2018/01/29 03:57:37 UTC] <jemmett-GV> S-turns starting now
[2018/01/29 04:03:58 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Vr much better now.  Mostly grey.
[2018/01/29 04:07:45 UTC] <jemmett-GV> lost comms to CMU.  Cycling power on CMU
[2018/01/29 04:08:10 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Radar was still transmitting
[2018/01/29 04:08:58 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Regained comms.  Filament warmup
[2018/01/29 04:11:43 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Transmitting again, tx V, rx HV, nadir
[2018/01/29 04:14:13 UTC] <jemmett-GV> ChrisBurghart-ops, is there a way to regain communication to the CMU without power cycling the CMU?
[2018/01/29 04:38:54 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Note: Forgot to mention that there was a sonde dropped at 48 degrees when I did the scanning.
[2018/01/29 04:39:26 UTC] <jemmett-GV> Start NS cal
[2018/01/29 04:44:57 UTC] <jemmett-GV> finish NS cal
