Determining Gains and Bandpass Functions - MFCAL

As noted above, mfcal solves for antenna gains and bandpass function. It can also solve for the delay terms, but this is rarely useful. However it does assume an unpolarised calibrator and that the polarisation leakage terms are zero. If you have measured only the XX and YY correlations, you have to make these assumptions. However if you have measured all four polarisation products, then you can correct for these assumptions by running gpcal after mfcal.

We will now discuss some of the inputs to mfcal.
