Reducing 3-mm ATCA observations

By many measures, the ATCA 3-mm observing band is a completely different domain to the other ATCA bands. The science is different, the weather is much more important, and the mode of observing is quite different. Not surprisingly many aspects of the data reduction are also different. This chapter reviews the theory behind some of the differences, and then considers a practical approach to calibration.
