(cba:news) Fwd: VW Hyi -- the campaign has begun!

Hi CBAers,

Here's the key request from Christian for VW Hyi coverage - in 
particular, to flag the start of the next outburst.  We need that as the 
trigger to send all the other telescopes into action!  Even a single 
*visual* observation could do this, in principle.*  Be sure to cc 
everybody on the below list, because we have to get all the 
ready-to-start campaigns going in concert.

*Just to emphasize: no need for a CBA-type time series here. Just 
knowing that an outburst has started.

Hi Joe,

This is just a heads-up that our request for a radio trigger on VW Hyi's
next outburst (presumably in mid/late July) has been officially approved
now! And it looks like we might get Chandra time for the same outburst 
as well.
Perhaps you could send another request for monitoring round to the CBA 
who can see this target? I could also add some more info tomorrow via 
the cba emails if you think that's helpful.

I've cc'd the rest of our team here also, since they're really the ones
who will trigger the radio. Could you encourage your observers to 
contact all of us
directly by email, if they believe an outburst has started? It
would be important to add all of us to that email, to make sure at least
somebody is awake.
