KFPA Observation Summary; Organized by Source

All the KFPA test observations are public domain, and may be used by any one. To make finding the KFPA observations easier the observations are tabulated by source and molecular line. The observations are kept in the GBT data archive for test data with names, TKFPA_1 through TKFPA_43.
