Subject: LO phase "dc" control 

Locked the LO phase with a MICH offset=+91. The LO is midfringe (locked using the A-B zero crossing), so it's far from being "useful" for any readout but we can at least look at residual noise spectra.

I spent some time playing with the loop gains, filters, and overall lock acquisition, and established a quick TF template at Git/40m/measurements/BHD/HPC_LO_PHASE_TF.xml

So far, it seems that actuating on the LO phase through LO2 POS requires 1.9 times more strength (with the same "A-B" dc sensing). After closing the loop by FM4, and FM5, actuating on LO2 with a filter gain of 0.4 closes the loop robustly. Then, FM3 and FM6 can be enabled and the gain stepped up to 0.5 without problem. The measured UGF (Attachment #1) here was ~ 20 Hz. It can be increased to 55 Hz but then it quickly becomes unstable. I added FM1 (boost) to the HPC_LO_PHASE bank but didn't get to try it.

The noise spectra (Attachment #2) is still uncalibrated... but has been saved under Git/40m/measurements/BHD/HPC_residual_noise_spectra.xml
