80% 0No No60 d4/19/04 
Booster cogging study 1
100% 0No No1 d4/19/04First study showed random placement of the Booster notch
Booster cogging study 2
100% 0No No1 d4/21/04Booster/MI noth sync looks good. Notch needs to be moved in between batches
Booster cogging study 3
100% 0No No1 d5/4/04Notch is timed in with 1 booster batch. Low losses. Losses increase w 3 batches.
Booster cogging study 4
100% 0No No1 d7/8/04Find large losses in Booster with multi-batch. Cog timing is ok, but the notcher apparently doesn't have enough kick to remove the beam at 800 MeV.
Fix booster notcher problem
0% 0No No1 d7/9/047/22: Need new notcher power supply. GMPS problem to be solved by moving to new feeder? or feed forward. Will be fixed during long shutdown.
