OPERATIONAL
  1. Antenna orientation was changed to allow for greasing of the elevation access.
  2. Radars are operating in baseline mode.

TESTING
  1. Mentor and vendor visited the site this week.
    1. Servo and PDU powers were sometimes reported incorrectly. Input signal level was modified and the issue was eliminated.
    2. Radar would stick when moving from PPI to RHI scans. Vendor was able to fix the problem by modifying the algorithm for antenna movement.
    3. Vendor made improvements to antenna operation by adding a couple of missing parameters related to the RCP8
  2. Radar is currently operating in the baseline scan strategy.
