Work Day January 30

The LCP had some difficulty waking after it’s break. The FT81 displayed errors indicating failure to load the operational software, which we diagnosed as a defective ME147 Store Card (upper ‘parity fail’ LED lit). After replacing ME147 card # 401 with ME148 #136, the system ran perfectly all day.

While Neil, Dave and Ian did hard graft on the radar, Pete M hid in the nice warm LCP gathering material for our proposed YouTube videos.

Today’s achievements were:
a) Temporary floor installed in the radar
b) Loads of photos taken and videos recorded.
c) Fire / Test switch, red cover lock removed for offsite fettling by Dave S.
d) Various other radar parts cleaned and lubricated.
e) Eight filled donuts consumed.
