Next: REWIND Up: Details of SCHED Parameters Previous: REPeat   Contents


REVERSE is an obsolete parameter now that tape is no longer being used.

REVERSE requests that the direction of motion of the wide-band Mark III or VLBA tape be reversed at the start of the scan. No rewinds or fast forwards will be done if this is requested. REVERSE is not needed normally. SCHED checks each scan to see if it will fit in the current direction. If not, the tape will be reversed before the next scan begins. If REVERSE is specified with no argument, the tape will be reversed at all stations. If one or more station names are given, the tapes will be reversed at only those stations. Station codes may be used instead of station names.
