Topics

  • SRR Topics
    • Date, venue of followup
    • AI #18 from your report of the July 2005 SRR says:18 OPEN Sci, SE -> FE DS 2006-02-17 70 "Check need for requirement on -3dB freqs.
    • QUESTION: How big a frequency change of ANY of the local oscillators will we ever want, where we want to refer the interferometric phase of the new frequency to that of the original frequency? An equivalent question is how big a frequency change will we ever want, without having to recalibrate the phase?
      • Should our spec be "we want the phase to be reproducible within 0.5 degrees (??) for any frequency change of any LO, but we want the phase change to be computable without further calibration, to the same tolerance, for any frequency change up to [X] GHz."
      • draft abstract of a protomemo on the subject.
      • Discussion abstracted at Timing Issues wiki
  • Receiver Rejection CRE
    • See comments in edm please. FE Comments received.
  • ICDs
    • ICD Science to Computing on Weather stations Mangum, Otarola to work on this.
      • Exact locations TBD
      • As for weather instruments at ATF (thermal sounder details?)
    • ICD Science to Site for Weather stations Wootten to finish this.
