Topics

  1. Subarrays -- An option has arisen whereby the patch panel could accommodate any or all of the antennas available. See Subarray Wiki
  2. Rebaselining. A number of issues arose for the Science IPT and others. Management done this am.
  3. Early Science Modes: Our proposal for the TFB mode is a wideband mode for e.g. continuum simultaneous with a narrowband mode for e.g. a spectral line. Please comment; we don't have to be limited to one but without a specific group there could be nearly an infinite number. See ALMA Early Science Modes SCID-90.00.00.00-011-A-LIS.
