mirror [open] [close]
The command returns with done mirror xx where xx is either open or close depending on the status after the command is issued. If open or close is requested and the status disagrees, an error message is issued.

NOTE: it takes about 37 seconds to open or close the mirror. Ideally the mirror should be pointed near the zenith before closing. The program does not check if this is the case.

If the mirror is partially open or closed the following ERROR message will be generated.

> tx mirror open
ERROR mirror mirror in mixed state
