6 cm Session Feedback
Westerbork (Tony Foley at Thu Sep 18 17:44:26 METDST 1997) Success
Using the prototype MFFE in RT7 (same as 18cm)
Circular polarization made in the fontend (quarter-wave plate)
and alleged purity about 2%. Direction checked by radiating
with helical antennae (reasonably convincing this time).
System temperatures about 800Jy (68K and 0.085K/Jy)
Effelsberg (dgraham at Wed Sep 24 13:31:38 METDST 1997) Minor failures
Tsys 29K at zenith. Do not use standard gain/elevation curve due to
work on antenna surface. Revised curve will be provided at session end.
