The MERLIN Time Allocation Group of the Panel for the Allocation of Telescope Time met on 2nd December 1997 to consider 40 proposals for Semester 98A (1st February 1998 to 31st August 1998). Proposals were received for C-band (4.5 - 5.2 GHz), L-band (1.3 - 1.7 GHz) and P-band (408 MHz). However, there was insufficient demand at 408 MHz to warrant changing to this frequency during semester 98A.
Time was awarded in the following categories:
A and TO: Highest priority -- Observations are not guaranteed, but in the past all or almost all of the observations in this category are usually completed. TO time is for Target of Opportunity observations. Should these not arise they are covered by additional B priority time.
B: Lower priority -- No commitment is given to complete observations in this category, though a significant number are usually observed. For certain projects, this may include observations with a subset of the MERLIN array.
C: Fill-in -- Short observations of a few hours duration for projects in this category may be used to fill scheduling gaps in the A and B programme.
At L-band, the allocation of the Lovell telescope is also indicated.
