We worked on tuning the DD handoff tonight. We checked the DD PD alignments and they looked fine. First I tuned the 3 demod phases to minimize offsets. Then I noticed that the post-handoff MICH xfer function needed an increase in gain to look like the pre-handoff xfer function (which has a UGF of about 25 Hz). I increased the MICH PD9_Q gain from 2 to 7 in the input matrix. But, the handoff to PRC still failed, so tomorrow we will try to find out why.
In the plot, ref0 is before MICH handoff, and ref1 is after MICH handoff. There is also a PRC trace (before PRC handooff).
