#BPMs don’t report the same orbit in tune mode and CW.  And BPMs report beam when there is no beam. It’s possible there’s just too much 1497 MHz rf inside the enclosureCan the stripline BPMs look for a harmonic of 1497 MHz?  Hopefully, they can be made to work, but I fear striplines and expensive receivers where the wrong choice (older SEE antenna-style bpms might have been better, after all, they work at CEBAF when RF is ON)

#*Shut down
Did the Yao cavity get damaged during one of the bakeouts? Pull it and check it out

#*Hot Standby / Daily Start-up
Move Faraday Cup 3 to downstream viewer cross?  Not adjacent to control room, that’s the point here, where radiation levels are problematic

#*Power outage response checklist
More concrete shielding!

#Add Video camera inside cave - preferably through viewer system for flexibility. Additional I/O required?
Consolidate the locations of steering magnets? Put them where they need to be

Diagnostics:
What was the point of putting BPMs on the elevated beamline?  Did we think they would see 1nA beam? I guess we just thought we would thread beam in tune mode up there….
+
#BPMs don’t report the same orbit in tune mode and CW & BPMs report beam when there is no beam: Too much 1497 MHz rf inside the enclosure? Can the stripline BPMs look for a harmonic of 1497 MHz?  Were strip lines / DR receivers right choice vs older SEE antenna-style bpms? (Musson studying behavior; RF shielding put into place upstairs)
Need a beam loss accounting system; MPS BCM cavity or PSS BCM but this is a much bigger project (can’t we just buy a system that Trent designed/built for SLAC, or duplicate it?)
+
#BCM outputs (we have cavities, need receivers) (IC/Keith working on this now...)  
I need to learn how to use qsutility and set quads

#Cameras that can be line-synced, then we could use them to look for 60 Hz motion.
More UHV supplies, another set of them

For regions that get vented frequently, there should be flange mounted NEG pump

#A3 should be closer to booster in order to protect the booster and define the launch
The buncher heater control is primitive, just a local heater with feedback.  There is epics temperature readback, but no epics interface to the heater control.

#Survey view screens which are already YAG, but inappropriately labelled and correct. Change over remaining screens as opportunities present.
Wouldn’t it be easier to use a 200 W solid state amp to drive the 2-cell?  Forward power today is only 40 W, the 2-cell is not meant to be driven hard.  
+
#Decouple viewer from FC2 upstream of booster, also add another corrector just upstream.
Complete microphonics assessment, install vibration isolation pads? 
+
#IHAM703 X/Y swapped
Microphonics diagnostics should be available when running beam, so that when problems are encountered, we can see immediately if there’s a correlation with microphonic vibrations. At the moment, we can only assess microphonics from inside the cave, when the beam is OFF  
+
#Current Monitor Screen: Fix dump labels; Add BCM
Better rf quality to 2-cell? 
+
#IYGM604 vibrating?? Loose turnbuckle?
Do the piezo tuners do anything?  Why not?  
+
 
I think the booster should have been a low Q design to make it more reliable.  I am not expert on this topic, but high Q is important for long linacs that present a large cryo burden. The booster does not pose a large cryo burden - we should have forgone Q for reliability.
