v185a Setup:

**(note additional config for ATCA in comments section below)**

Antennas At-Mp-Ho-Cd-Pa-Hh
Start 139 06:30:00
Stop 139 18:29:10
Channel 1 8417 - 8433 MHz USB RCP
Channel 2 8417 - 8433 MHz USB LCP
Bandwidth 16 MHz
Recorder S2
S2 Mode 32×4-2
DAS Mode
Buggary Cable in
Tape Change 139 12:27:08



Steven (during setup): have switched to DAS1 so that we can use full_64_64-128 correlator configuration to get 128 MHz with full stokes at 4800 MHz on ATCA 1freq. 2freq set to 64 MHz band, but only two pol products xx and yy.

Alternatively use S2 mode 32a4-2 without buggary cable. Either edit .skd file before running drudg, or edit .prc file after running drudge.

PCFS schedules ftp'd and drudg'd at At, Mp, Pa.

Note for ATCA Observers: PI requests second frequency chain at ATCA to be set up with freq=4800 MHz, bandwidth=128 `MHz and that the ATCA finishes the schedule 15-20 minutes early (or continues observing past the end of recording) to make a 10 minute scan of 1934-638 for flux scale calibration. This will permit an accurate total flux density measurement and allow an ATCA image to be made at 4.8 and 8.4 GHz.
