Call for monitoring dwarf novae (Skidmore)

Dear vsnet Observers,

I am part of a team that will be using the 4-meter William Herschel Telescope on La Palma on the 24-26th of February 1997. The purpose of the run is to get spectroscopy of the "dwarf nova oscillations" (DNOs), which are small amplitude, periodic oscillations seen only when dwarf nova are in outburst.

Can you help me determine the state of the following dwarf novae leading upto and during my run? I am most interested in the following systems:

        SY Cnc
        CN Ori
	Z  Cam
	V1159 Ori
        U  Gem
        KT Per

All observations are greatly appreciated.
With much thanks,
Warren Skidmore
