Siteweekly is an email newsletter describing the state of large-scale interferometers around the world: KAGRA, Virgo, GEO and LIGO. Each week you will receive the latest status from these sites, as scientists and engineers install and commission their interferometers, bringing them to an operating state and reducing noise in the detectors. You'll read on plans and progress, problems and solutions, as well as developments during observation runs. Aimed at keeping analysts apprised of the detector status, the reports are written in a style that is accessible to those without a detailed knowledge of gravitational wave instrumentation.
To sign-up for the SiteWeekly email newsletter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line SUBSCRIBE siteweekly firstname lastname (substituting your actual first and last names; you can leave the body text empty).
The typical rate of text-based updates is no more than one message per week.
