The office numbers are listed for local people, although the
best way to contact them will probably also be at the HQ contact
phone numbers listed above.
There are two ways to send your data and logs at the end of each night.
- Via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- By FTP to: wet.physics.iastate.edu
The username for the FTP site
and the password is available through email. This information is only
available through email because we have had problems with hackers filling the
FTP system in the past. This is not an anonymous FTP transfer, so you will
need the username and password to upload your data.
If you use the FTP option, load your data into the "wet/incoming/xcov24/"
We will be reducing the data as fast as they come in, and we'll
contact you promptly if we have any questions about, or problems with, the
data you send. If you are using a CCD system, please be sure to use the data format outlined at http://wet.physics.iastate.edu/Tools/xqed/format.html.
Note that HQ will not be accepting CCD frames during the campaign, but will require them to be sent in after the campaign.
In case the IITAP mail/ftp servers go down, there is an emergency
email address for use in contacting the control center:
World Wide Web
We have a WWW site set up for XCov 24. It currently has all
finder charts, observing instructions, contact information, assigned
observing time, etc. During the run, we will keep it updated with
the latest results and thoughts on the data. It will also have a discussion
page where all can contribute to a discussion about the run. We would
welcome your comments on how to improve the usefulness of the WWW site.
