Getting there...

The last few days have have been characterized by the arrival of new people: on Friday Adam Hincks, yesterday Lyman Page and today Ye Zhou (AMEC). In the meanwhile the work at the site is proceeding: the telescope motion control electronics (aka the Kuka cabinet) is now in the Equipment Room ready to be reconnected, the telescope's side ground screen has been installed and ConPax started erecting the ground screen. In San Pedro we installed the 4' parabolic dish that together with the 2' one already installed at Cerro Toco will make possible operating the the telescope remotely. Our effort in the next few days will be concentrated in getting the telescope rewired and getting the remote link operational.
