password from inside door in TCS metal cabinet in electronics room. Type
'engineering' on the console, then option '3' for altazservo.
Choose option '23' for the old clock time (option '24' sets to
the GPS clock). Give a '0' to quit altaz section and another
'0' to quit engineering. Then as the last thing You may type
'logout' on the console, but it is fine to leave it as it is for
