173: Data, Site Southwest, Fri 22-Dec-2006 17:05:53 MST, co2 at sw is quality controlled
The licor-7500 has been quality controlled, it consisted of removing bad data during rain and everythin else was ok.

147: Station_Visit, Site Southwest, Sat 28-Oct-2006 09:54:56 MST, upload data from SW
The usb stick was removed from SW and uploaded between 9:00 and 9:55 am, local.
141: KH2O, Site Southwest, Thu 26-Oct-2006 17:38:23 MST, generator-spike
There is a -Inf spike on h2o at about 1100 today.  This is when the generator
was being serviced.  We thought that the battery at the station would keep
it going through this, but apparently the station voltage dropped to 11.4V
during this period.

It looks like it came back up okay.

49: Adam, Site Southwest, Sun 08-Oct-2006 17:06:42 MST, sw down from ~20UTC to 23UTC 08 Oct
Data system was down while testing a
new Linux kernel.

It is running again now.
47: Radiometers, Site Southwest, Sun 08-Oct-2006 15:41:24 MST, Plugged in Tsurface at sw
Tsurface at sw was not plugged in!  Rectified this oversight.
46: Sonic, Site Southwest, Sun 08-Oct-2006 15:40:14 MST, Installed CSAT sn 0378 at sw
Configured and installed PSU CSAT sn 0378 at sw today
14: Radiometers, Site Southwest, Thu 05-Oct-2006 15:55:00 MST, Rnet and Tsurface at sw
Around 1500 local time, I turned the Rnet over to read the coefficients:
positive = 8.70
negative = 10.77

Around 1530 local time, I removed power from the logger to add power to
the Everest Tsurface plug.  Plugged in Tsurface.
4: Prop_Vane, Site Southwest, Tue 03-Oct-2006 17:53:17 MST, Measured prop vane boom angle
I calibrated the data scope and entered the local declination of 12.2 deg E.
Then I measured the orientation of the prop vane boom to be 180 deg + 91.5 deg
=271.5 degrees true.
A second prop measurement was made on 10/26/06: reading was 269

3: Radiometers, Site Southwest, Tue 03-Oct-2006 17:51:51 MST, Installed net radiometer
Around 19:00 local time, I installed a net radiometer at the southwest site.
Note that I did not enter the coefficient in the logger.

5/10/07, TWH:  Note that the time, 19:00, has to be wrong because the entry is
dated 17:51:51. My guess from looking at the Rnet data is that this should be
around 17:00.
