VEGAS First Integration Tsys Problem

The problem

Jay's student noticed that Tsys was periodically very high in their data and so they reported the problem. From looking at their data, I can confirm the following:

  • The data are frequency switched observations taken in VEGAS observing mode 23

  • The high Tsys values always fall in the first integration of each scan (both polarizations)

Resolution

  • For now, recommended that they blank the first integration of each scan
