The solar activity was low, mostly B-flare activity with several C-flares. There are only two ARs on disk, and we expect to see low activity next week.
How many GOES flares occurred?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 21 4 0 0
And how many of these are listed in the RHESSI flare list?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 13 4 0 0
And how many had EXCELLENT coverage?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 7 4 0 0
There were RHESSI flares/GOES flares 87 / 25 over the time range 11-Oct-16 18-Oct-16
The SSR was at 0% at the end of BGS passes.
On Thursday Oct.13, Detector 8 was turned off and Detector 9 was turned on (HV ramped up to ~3000V). Currently, Detectors 3 and 9 are recording events. The cold tips temperature have come down a little partly due to day light changes. They are currently 119.0 and 117.0 K as of 2016-10-19. The cold plates, 1 and 2 are 143.8 and 142.1 K. The battery looks good, well above 26V.
There were two relatively large data gaps in addition to short (typically 300 s) data gaps.

Detectors 3 and 9 are powered on, and are recording events. On Oct.17 (DOY 291), D9 rear fast threshold was raised from 0x60 to 0x90. In the following passes, it was lowered down to 0x70 and then raised back to 0x80. Currently the livetime is still low, reaching 5%.

Because there is no marginal difference between Detectors 8 and 9, the team decided to keep Detector 9 for a while.
