PMT Repair

Paul and Edmundo are planning their trip for July 12-16. Registration difficulties have been resolved. Paul's Rad worker testing is scheduled. They are bringing the equipment necessary to affect repairs, including 10 PMTs (only 2 are needed) and a vacuum chamber.

Air Light Guides

Minor point of historical significance only: the plan with the air light guides, now postponed indefinitely, was to install four of them, one for each pair of single-ended counters in the upstream plane, and assess performance.

Loaned Equipment Return

FSU has purchased a CAEN ADC and a Wiener VXS crate. These are to replace items loaned from the Lab. In addition to the 10 PMTs mentioned above, Paul and Edmundo will be bringing the Lab's ADC and crate with them for return.

TOF II Trigger

Beni reported that Hai Dong has completed writing the new firmware for the TOF CTP. The next step is downloading and testing. Eugene floated the idea of Sascha Somov doing the downloading and Sergey Furletov doing the testing.

TOF NIM paper

No new news.
