    • CMacW: Pursue ISIS for buffered signal and TOF1 rewiring in MICO.
    • ES: Send updated tracks data to A. Belozertseva.
    • MR: Control system modified for single station test.i
    • DA: Make shift schedule for May run.
    • CMacW: Need to check on level of access during H test.
    • ES: Modify unpacking to accommodate new VLSBMaster data format.
    • AD/DA: Add services to the agenda. (Done.)
    • AD/MR: Liaise with Chris Rogers about use of new OnRec machine.
