collection of papers relevant to ALMA.
Follow-up to last week's discussions
It is urgent that the preproduction receivers be used at the ATF as soon as practicable. This may be possible early in 2006, but Webber says to plan around winter
2006-7 may be a pessimistic approach.

Baseline Ripple and quantization noise
Wootten is working on action item to develop a spec for this. Plan: Use a template spectrum for a high redshift galaxy, whose redshift would be determinable from
the CO line within the spectrum and the one other (HCN) line also present at 20% of its strength. Using a set of values for the spec and the template spectrum,
estimate the spec for which the redshift determination becomes impossible owing to the other lines becoming lost in the noise.
Total Power spectral line calibration
There was little discussion of this topic last week so it is continued here at TsysCal
