Correlation notes

Output files:

Pass File name Description Start date, UT range Antennas Polarizations # subbands (AIPS IFs) Bandwidth per IF (MHz) Spectral channels per IF/pol Corr. int. time (s)
v596b V596B.FITS 2021-07-18, 0/16:55:16 - 1/11:55:15 AT CD HO KE MP PA TI WW YG RR LL RL LR 4 16.0 MHz 32 1.0

AT: Small clock jumps (~20 nsec) at ~23:12 and ~04:39. Phase/delay solutions will not transfer across these boundaries. The tied array was also accidentally formed with atmospheric corrections applied - this has been compensated in the correlator but might result in slightly larger phase referencing residuals than normal.
TI: DSS34, RCP only. 07:22 to 10:22
KE: Subband 1-2 v. low sensitivity. Subband 3-4 RCP Low sensitivity. Data could not be pol converted (still in linear basis).
PA: Polarization basis converted from linear to circular *after* correlation.
This is still experimental, so please inspect data carefully.
