        few weeks the first of two transmitters will arrive and be installed in the LERF.
+
      - Mounted a BNNT Halo monitor screen for the Isotope beam line run the LERF, also worked to get beam to 0G dump
+
        and to the 1G dump. Initially the vacuum system was not ready then we were all ready & the drive laser would not stay
+
        locked. There were a number of items on HCO that were signed off but not operational. We will try to run to the 1G

        dump in ~6 weeks when we are back at 2K.

        updated the Atlis.
