At Kamioka (Mark, Ohishi-san, Fabian, Enzo, Hirata-san, Yoshioka-kun, Kozu-kun):
 * We put lock nuts on the F0 FR and calibrated the F0 LVDT against FR position and keystone height.
 * Enzo traced the issue with the geophones to a specific cable.
 * We measured the BF and F0 GAS resonant frequencies.
 * We adjusted the spacing of the SR damper.
 * We double-checked the BS pitch with the OL.
 * We debugged the PI yaw mechanism. We managed to get the return spring properly adjusted, but the stepper motor tends to jam because of the strange design.
 * '''We prepared the suspension for lifting and craned it into the tank.'''
 * Hirata-san fixed an issue with one of the nailheads on the LBB intermediate ring support rods not properly seating, by removing the rod and reinstalling it upside down (with the problem nailhead in a less critical position).
 * Enzo and team moved all the in-air cables from the assembly frame to the tank.
 * Fabian and Ohishi-san unlocked the bottom section of the suspension and got it hanging freely.

 * Finish moving in-air cabling and feedthroughs and reconnect in-vacuum cables (through Cu O-rings).
 * Unlock rest of suspension and readjust.
 * Debug electronics.
 * Unclamp LBB ring "sandwich" so LBB Cu ring is suspended on upper rods.
 * Install LBB lower rods and hook LBB.
 * Adjust LBB damper Cu-magnet gap.
 * Measure required ballast for LBB.
 * Remove First Contact, try OL.
 * Prepare for SR2 work.
At Kamioka (Mark, Ohishi-san, Fabian, Enzo, Hirata-san, Yoshioka-kun):
 * We moved all the in-air cables over to the tank.
 * We plugged all the in-air and in-vacuum cables into the feedthroughs and checked that we got signals from all the output channels (actuation not yet tested). We had to work around a snag with the new F-F gender changers that replace many Type 1 and Type 2 cables: like the vacuum feedthroughs, they flip pins 1 and 5. The in-air cables don't plug directly into the feedthroughs very well, so we made up some non-flipping adapters similar to the anti-feedthrough adapters.
 * Hirata-san fixed a problem with one of the rods supporting the LBB Cu ring, where the head was not seating in the receptacle at the bottom. The head was slightly bent so he just reinstalled the rod upside-down to move the bent head to a less critical spot. (This also establishes that it's possible to install the rods later if we need to, although it's more convenient to bring them in with the suspension on the crane as we've been doing it.)
 * We suspended the LBB. Per a request from Akutsu-san, we set it as high as we easily could. We decided on 30 mm higher than in the CAD, for a height of 367 (instead of 397) mm for the beam line above the LBB.
 * We moved a lot of stuff out of the +X side of the cleanbooth to behind SRM, so that Mirapro could connect the section of beam duct between the BS tank and the X arm. They put the new section in position but have not connected it up yet.
 * Hirata-san worked with Mirapro to get the SR assembly frame assembled in the SR3 area. (Insertion of the LBB and installation of the top of the tank is planned for 10/18-20.)
 * We investigated a problem with the IM OSEM readings, which were far from mid-range. Although Fabian and Ohishi-san got the payload hanging nicely on Thu 9/21, sometime between then and when we plugged the OSEMs back in on 9/28, the BF and IRM apparently tipped considerably (with the +X corner high) so that the H2 and H3 OSEM flags are fouling on the bottom and top of their respective OSEMs.
 * [To be continued. Do our intrepid investigators fix the problem without having to crane the suspension out of the tank again? Stay tuned for the next exciting installment!]
