    Shift To Shift Handover Report

    Blog Posts

    Task Items

    • Emilio Barrios AI: Look after coverage measurements when Morning shift AO should take the bus to the airport early than 13:45. Up to now measurement is to ask the Managers coverage or the Morning_2 AO just arriving to the OSF to start her(is) shift maximunm 1/2h early. Worse case when no managers niether other AO at the OSF. Options could be:
      • take a late fly + over time + special transport to the airport
      • get coverage from the SCO CRE 
    • Hector Alarcon  AI: Prepare a confluence 24 hrs Shifts handover Report Template. It should include:
      • Night-to-Morning news
      • Morning-to-Afternoon or Morning-to-Evening news
      • 17:00 Coordination meeting agrements and requirements 
      • Departing time-schedule last minute change  
      • Evening-to-Night news

        AOS/OSF Power Cut:

        In case of power-cut do follow AOG Power-Cut Recovery procedure
        Bad Weather:

        Do follow the  Weather Conditions under which the Antennas at the AOS shall be Shutdown and the Subsequent Restart Procedure  UPDATED.
        • Regarding the precipitation confirmation from the AOS, we should follow this basic comunication protocol :

          When guards arrive to the AOS building, they should:Call us to stablish the link as well as to check radio channelNotify us when they go out for the rutine checks.

          At any moment you could call them to either 6491 or 6550 annex. In the case when it is a must to cross-check precipitation condition and nobody answer the phone, leave the antennas in survival and wait til somebody answer the question.

        What to do when windspeed shows the RED FLAG (> 20(m/s) and an observation is in progress
        1. On the scheduler do press the STOP SB button and wait till the end of the scan.
        2. Run [ -a <antennaList> ] ; without parameters will move all the antennas not in survival-stow position
        National Desaster

        In case of any catastrophic emergency (Earthquate, Volcanic activity, etc .. ect..) please we must call each other to the following personal phone and cell numbers. If e-mail, facebook, tweeter working, also broadcast your coordinates and health state as well as your needs. As there are no official protocols to formalize programmed decision like evacuation actions, priorities and transport ways (alma-bus, comercial bus, airplanes, Charter from San Pedro aerodromo, taxis) we must use the current experience to develop our own as a contribution to the new protocols to be defined in the near future.
