How often to calibrate? 5 min on 3c279: 10% amp fluctuation, RMS 15
System Temperatures T sys, corrected for atmospheric absorption, was determined using the paddle while stepping in frequency from 84-87 GHz. Some of the frequency variation may be due to varying atmosphere.
System Temperatures Same observation for 87-91 GHz.
System Temperatures Since the “psJy” scale is derived assuming constant GT sys of 500 Jy, the visibility amplitude in psJy is anticorrelated with T sys.
Sensitivity Estimate, 86 GHz Assuming a flux of 8 Jy for Uranus, the observed amplitude and T sys give the geometric mean Jy/K for the two antennas.
Sensitivity Estimate, 90 GHz Note strong RFI at 88.160 GHz. Significant RFI is also found at 88.000 and 88.320 GHz, weaker at 88.240 GHz.
