ATCA Bi-statuic Radar Observing Instructions

Telescope

cacor setup?

DAS

  • Make sure the “8 bit” cable is connected between DAS “DigiOut” board and VSIC
  • Set VSIC to mode (Huygens)
  • Configure DAS using msl_f.pro profile. This gives a 4 MHz band, offset from central ATCA IF frequency by XX MHz.

Recording

Record the data using the command:

 vsib_record -m 2 -bits 8 -w 4 -x -o EXPERIMENTNAME -t Xh
 

Where “X” is the recording time in hours. There is an alias to allow this to be simplified to:

 radarrecord -o EXTERIMENTNAME -t Xh
