Siteweekly

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. And as the field moves into data collection and detection phases, you'll hear about 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.

You can sign up at the following link: http://relativity.phys.lsu.edu/mailman/listinfo/siteweekly. The typical rate of text-based updates is no more than one message per week.
