ASCA weekly

Dear ASCA users,

I am sending an ASCA observation schedule for the period of
January 30 to February 10.

Flight operation of the ISAS MUSES-B (Space VLBI) mission has started
at KSC  (Kagoshima Space Center ) and the satellite is scheduled to be launched 
on February 7th. Since ISAS launching site, KSC has only a single set of
ground-based equipments (commander/receiver etc.) for tracking
satellites, ASCA tracking will be significantly disturbed by the MUSES-B
flight operation during the period form middle January to middle February, 
especially around the launching day. We will attempt to keep ASCA observations
as continuously as possible during MUSES-B flight operation, however,
if there happen cancel of some observations due to  confliction with the 
MUSES-B operation, those observations will be shifted to the next window.
