NRAO observing proposal submission deadlines for the VLA, VLBA, and/or the GBT are 1 February and 1 August each year. The 1 February deadline applies to requests for observing time from 1 August–31 January; the 1 August deadline applies to requests for time from 1 February–31 July. If the proposal submission deadline dates fall on a Saturday or Sunday, then the deadline is moved to the following Monday. Thus, the NRAO proposal submission deadlines in 2015 will be Monday, 2 February 2015 for Semester 2015B proposals; and Monday, 3 August 2015 for Semester 2016A proposals.
