Configuration Plan for ACA. Mostly where with respect to each other. A good reference
work on the reason for the ACA. Sensitivity as a function of baseline shows an
incredible deficit at short spacings. This plot disagrees with SG's so we should
understand why. Shortest baselines 15m, falls off but there is a place where the
7m contribution comes in at around 10m. Mark thinks equations are correct and will
do an independent analysis. Mark will ask about linking document.
9 incremental Y+ configurations, taking 4 Conway stations and moving them out. The
Ninth is not converging to provide high enough resolution, low enough inner sidelobes.
This is iterative, so it is not independent of the eighth.
Longest single baseline 19 km, was similar last time.
Action: who else stays in Chile?
