Memory Management

Decimation was normal/active for the week. Front segment events are turned on during eclipses. No rear decimation during South Magnetic Zone. SSR is at ~1% (peaked at > 30% during the week).

Data Gaps

A few more VC1-SOH 5 min or 10 min gaps than usual this week. Jim attributes them to noisy Wallops data (they seem to often have this issue at the start of a pass). Two VC1-PMTRAS data gaps on the 8th (30 min , and 40 min), are being investigated by Jim as I write these lines.

Other Operations Issues

No obs. Summ. fits files and quick plots have been produced since Jan 9. The power outage is the cause of this glitch. Problem has been fixed, and the stuff should be all there in a couple of days.
