V184a Setup:

Description Highly polarised water maser in Orion-KL
Antennas Pa-At-Mp-Ho-Cd
Start 136 01:00:00
Stop 136 11:00:03
PI Shinji Horiuchi
Channel 1 IFP#1 22.2 GHz USB RCP
Channel 2 IFP#2 22.2 GHz USB LCP
Skyfreq 22228, 22232, 22237 & 22238 MHz
Bandwidth 4 MHz
Recorder Disk
DAS Mode (telescope)



This is frequency switched experiment. You will need to change frequency numerous times during the observation.

Connect DAS directly to VSIC.

This is a disk based experiment. Do NOT delete the data after recording!!!!

Use record mode “Channel 1,3” in disko and set bandwidth to 4 MHz

Record on disk specified in observing comments

Observing comments for each antenna:

This data was poorly observed and poorly correlated. After a great amount of work I have decided it is not worth continuing on.

4 Freq configs. Correlated as 4 IFs (of which 3 are empty) of 22GHz.

ATLOD failed for large files. Found some bugs. Fixed set MAXCIF=1025*4*4 & NBLK has an integer over-run

The file CL tables need deleting and remaking

The target list: source = 'KL-B' (v complex! 4MHz filled) CAT calibrator 1 or 2 detection ~0nsec

source = 'KL-HM' ; (detection) no calibrator source = '07207-1435' ; (weak) source = 'KL-HP' ; no detection) CAT one calibrator detection ~200nsec source = 'MonR2' ; Not obs source = 'R-CRT' ; Not obs source = 'NGC6334N' ; (strong) only calibrator Pks-Mop
