KA Band receiver testing - October 12, 2004
The 26_40 GHz receiver testing involved observing
spectra, exercising the 3 different bands available
through the MM Converter module.
800 MHz spectra covering (mostly) the whole 26-40 GHz range.
800 MHz Spectra of W3(OH)
W3(OH) is a strong continuum source in the 26-40 GHz range.
Ott et al(1994) give S(23.78GHz) = 3.17 Jy and S(43.2GHz) = 3.72 Jy.
We have taken ON/Off spectra of W3(OH) at a variety of frequencies.
