SOHO Daily Meeting Minutes for Friday 27 June 2003

* We expect to lose the high gain antenna link today (or at least
not be able to reacquire it on tomorrow’s 34 meter pass). We no
longer have it on 26m stations, just on the 34m stations. Once we
lose the high gain antenna link on the 34m stations, the spacecraft
will be transitioned to low rate.

We have daily passes on 34 meter stations for monitoring and
commanding of the spacecraft. The 34 meter schedule for this week
is included below. Since the times are very limited, we’d like to
request that ALL TEAMS BE AVAILABLE (at EOF or by phone) during the
passes, in case your instrument comes up in an unexpected state.
When downlink only 34 meter stations are scheduled, a 26 meter
station will be used for uplink (i.e. all 34 meter passes will
have commanding capability).

Week 26 34-Meter Passes

                   BOT   EOT
   Fri     DSS-54 13:00-17:45 UT
   Sat     DSS-24 17:35-20:35 UT
   Sun     DSS-54 13:00-17:30 UT

* Current RHESSI default target is AR10391. When selecting this
target to maximize coordination w/others, use campaign number 6850.

* There will be about 10 UMD physics engineering students visiting the
EOF through the Goddard Outreach Program today at
11:15 AM. POC: Bob Dutilly.
