Solar activityt was very low this week.
How many GOES flares occurred?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 19 1 0 0
And how many of these are listed in the RHESSI flare list?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 5 1 0 0
And how many had EXCELLENT coverage?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 4 0 0 0
There were RHESSI flares/GOES flares 8 / 20 over the time range 01-Aug-17 08-Aug-17
Decimation was active/vigorous for the full time period, with the SSR level currently at around 20 - 30%.
Detectors 1, 3, 6, and 8 are recording events. The temperatures are about 130K and 128K for cold tips 1 and 2, respectively, as of July 26. The cold plates 1 and 2 are at about 156K and 155K. Cryocooler power is steady at ~75W, for recent temperatures, cryocooler efficiencies, and accelerometer values see:
A whole orbit on Aug 3 (~16:00 UT) seems to be missing.
Detectors 1, 3, 6, and 8 are powered on, and are recording events. No detector operations this week.
Both attenuators were IN on Monday, due to high D3f deadtime. D3f determines attenuator movements. Changes to the fast and slow thresholds have not helped. Hence, the reference deadtime level was raised to 24%, which brought both attenuators out. Detector deadtime has been slowly creeping up -- a lowering of the HV might be the only way to mitigate this.

A spin up was concluded on Monday.
