Subject: PRMI investigations: what IS the matrix?? 
  • Locked PRMI several tmes after Gautam setup. Easy w IFO CONFIG screenheart
  • tuned up alignment
  • Still POP22_I doesn't go above ~111, so not triggering the loops. Lowered triggers to 100 (POP22 units) and it locks fine now. smiley
  • Ran update on zita, and now it lost its mounts (and maybe its mind). Zita needs some love to recover the StripTool plots  sad
  • Put the $600 ebay TDS3052 near the LSC rack and tried to look at the RF power, but found lots of confusing information. Is there really a RF monitor in this demod board or was it disconnected by a crazy Koji cheeky ? I couldn't see any signal above a few mV.angry
  • Put a 20 dB coupler in line with the RF input and saw zip. Then I put the RF signal directly into the scope and saw that the 55 MHz signal is ~30 mVpp into 50 Ohms. I waited a few minutes with triggering to make sure I was getting the largest flashes. Why is the optical/RF signal so puny? surprise This is ~100x smaller than I think we want...its OK to saturate the RF stuff a little during lock acquisition as long as the loop can suppress it so that the RMS is < 3 dBm in the steady state.
