18 cm Session Feedback

The prototype MFFE had some problems when installed on the planned telescope, as the helium cooling system had not been properly flushed. Hence we had to use an old 18cm series frontend with Tsys of ~600-700Jy and produce the circular polarization using a hybrid in the IF system.

As usual we have had severe RFI at 18cm saturating our receiver.
