Recognizing that radio observations using the NRAO facilities will be important to the scientific exploration by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, up to 10% of the total observing time on each NRAO telescope was made available for joint observing. http://fermi.gsfc.nasa.gov/ssc/proposals/nrao.html
Fermi Cycle 2 observing will begin in 2009 August. The following joint Fermi/NRAO proposals were approved for Cycle 2.
