Subject-only Notice Examples

This shows the format of the Subject-only messages sent to those groups requesting the Subject-only distribution method. This is an extremely terse form of the messages. It contains only the Source and RA,Dec of the GRB (whereas the regular cell/pager and the e-mail formats have much more information). NOTE: These are Current epoch RA,Dec coordinate values!

There is a brief (less than 9 characters) prefix title line telling from which source the RA,Dec coordinates came. The HETE, INTEGRAL, XTE, and ALEXIS mission-based Notices are shown. There is also a TEST pseudo-source for testing purposes (the coordinates are selected from a set which uniformly samples the sky). The ORIGINAL, FINAL, MAXBC, and LOCBURST come from the CGRO-BATSE instrument, and are no longer available because the CGRO mission has ended.

Unlike the short-form cell/pager method which has no Subject-line, because the cell/pager companies don't have space, these notices put all the information in the Subject-line and do NOT have any information in the body of the e-mail. Even these Subject-only capable cell/pagers and cell-phones have only a limited character count displayable, so this distribution method is also terse.
