Short proposals

Short e-VLBI observations may be requested for checking calibration or target source compactness in preparation for or as part of a larger VLBI observation or proposal. Projects requesting short observations must use standard observing and recording modes. They will be scheduled on a best effort basis.

The format of short observation proposals should include:

  • A brief motivation, up to 250 words,
  • The target coordinates,
  • The calibrator coordinates,
  • The frequency setup,
  • The GST range,
  • Essential stations for the observation.
  • any other information necessary for central scheduling by JIVE
    staff, e.g. preferred phase-referencing cycle
