Subject: North PMC might be cause of 500Hz bump 

I was looking at the error signals of PMC servo and found some systematic oscillations in NPMC error signal at around 500 Hz.

So, I connected back the beatnote to the Marconi PLL and used the error signal from there to measure beatnote - NPMC error signal cross-spectrum. Here, the channel marked Mixer Out on the Servo card is FP3Test port which is marked as 'Mon1' on the schematic (latest schematic). This channel is essentially the output of mixer buffered with gain 1 through an LT1128. Note that currently on North side, we are using FP2Test to send the PD signal in with an external mixer.

Something is either physically wrong near North PMC or the card might have developed some bug, which needs to be tested.
