Correlation notes

Output files:

File name Description Start date, UT range Polarizations # subbands (AIPS IFs) Bandwidth per IF (MHz) Spectral channels per IF/pol Corr. int. time (s)
V441A.[0-14].FITS 2011-11-12, 0/13:00:00 - 1/13:00:00 RR LL 16 16.0 MHz 128 0.25

Analysis notes

Station Td = Tidbinbilla DSS34; observed 13:00-18:14.
Station Ti = Tidbinbilla DSS45; observed 11:27-13:00.
Files not separated so both stations have data in these time ranges; data associated with the station not observing will need to be flagged.
Problem with Tid recording at 512 Mbps means that some data were lost. DSS45 has a large clock offset as unable to find fringes during clock searching.

Ceduna has a severe phase instability problem - fringe fit solution intervals of 10s of seconds will be required to recover the data

Two out of 15 output FITS files have been pipelined; plots linked below.
