Scan List

Standard Setup. Boom is out, X-band is not in focus, though scans will still be performed with X-band.

  • Scans 1 failed. VEGAS is somehow in a bad state. Called Joe Brandt who is currently working on it.
  • Scans 2-3 Mode04_tp_Xband - Balance before each scan
  • Scans 4-5 Mode04_tp_Xband - no balance before - everything looks good and stable. The ripples are still visible, though the receiver bandpass dominates.

  • Scans 9-11 Mode06_tp_Xband - Balance only for scan 9 (all looks good up to this point)
