This Wiki page is a repository for information for the Organization and Logistics of the DAURE Campaign. Anyone involved in the campaign can add information directly, but due to problems with Spam you do need to login (and create an account if you don't have one already). You can also email Jose with any information and he can add it quickly to the site.

Location and Logistics of Rural (Montseny) Site

  • The rural site will be in the Montseny National park, this map has a general relation of the site with Barcelona
  • Closest vilages to Montseny site are: Santa María de Palautordera and Sant Esteve de Palautordera. Restaurants and accomodation are available also overthere. Montseny is 1.5 h driving from Barcelona and 20 min from the above villages.
  • Water, power, beds, a basic lab and plenty of space are available at the rural site house. Unfortunately the phone landline has been cut and cannot be repaired in time for the study.
  • The local electrician which has worked at the site is Joan Ortega, 608-69-13-21. He has worked most directly with Andres Alastuey of CSIC, but we can call him directly in case of electrical problems.
  • The best mobile phone and mobile internet coverage at the rural site is with "Telefonica / Movistar". Those of you with a GSM phone can buy a SIM card to get in their network.
  • It is possible to get internet access with a USB modem over the cell phone network, however cell phone coverage varies and doesn't always work.
  • We have explored satellite internet but it is expensive (3000 euros for 1 yr or 6000 euros for 3 yrs) so we are not planning on having it
  • There is free (very basic) accomodation with small bunk beds, if you bring sheets and a blanket or a sleeping bag. There is heating and a fireplace but this can not be used to avoid emissions, we also cannot cook. We may bring electric heaters and adventurous folks could stay overnight at the site.
  • We will be staying at Can-Marc Rural Hotel. There is free wifi at the hotel and a restaurant that can provide breakfast and dinner.
    • Rooms are 50 Euros/night for a single or 25 for a shared room. Dinner is 15 Euros/person; Breakfast is 4 Euros
  • The last stretch of road to the Montseny site is still in bad shape (it would be tricky for a regular car). The plan is to have a 4x4 car there all the time, and use a second one to go daily from Barcelona as detailed in this spreadsheet
  • AMS spares from Eiko: spare V301; spare V301 controller (need to check); spare filaments; spare servo; spare chopper motor (need to check); 2 spare MCPs (kept under vacuum in ante-chamber); spare pinholes.
