VT Radar Schedules

See the web page for the Scheduling Working Group

Although the coded files are specifically for each radar, the Scheduling Working Group (SWG) files apply to all radars in the SuperDARN network.

Notes:

Note A: THEMISSCAN - This is a spacecraft working group request to support
the MMS mission. All radars should run themisscan during this interval.
This mode has a camping beam which is sounded on every 6 seconds. The
scanning scheme is such that the field of view scan is interleaved with the
camping beam. The PIs/operators are welcome to adapt the mode for the
geometry for any conjunctions as they see fit (e.g., by changing the
camping beam) - footprint plots can be found at
http://www.southampton.ac.uk/~rcf2c13/footprints/ .

Note B: THEMISSCAN - This is a spacecraft working group request to support
all-sky camera operations during the new moon period over North America.
All radars should run themisscan during this interval. This mode has a
camping beam which is sounded on every 6 seconds. The scanning scheme is
such that the field of view scan is interleaved with the camping beam.

Note C: This is a spacecraft working group request to support the Cluster
mission during conjunctions with the EISCAT radar. All radars should run
a 1-min normalscan (no frequency switching) during these intervals except
HAN and PYK, which are requested to run the scanning sequences below:

PYK ch A: normal scan
PYK ch B: 4, 5, 6 (ESR) and 13, 14, 15 (Tromso)
HAN ch A: normal scan
HAN ch B: 8, 9, 10 (ESR) and 4, 5, 6 (Tromso)
