-> This two-channel system ​with cooled HEMT pre-amplifiers ​has been designed ​for spectroscopy ​and VLBI observations. +**Comments** 
-This system is part of Primary Focus Multi Frequency Box #2 (PM 2).+>​This ​receiver is a straight forward 300 MHz to 900 MHz receiver ​with no down conversion. Due to intensive RFI in this broad frequency band three filter bands are installed in the main part to prevent the system from saturation by the strongest interferer. Nevertheless,​ there is much more RFI in the band that has to be filtered in the backend. For dedicated projects, switchable RF filters plus LNAs have been inserted ​for frequencies around 402 MHz and 611 MHzThe filters have a bandwidth ​of 7 to 10 MHz. For continuum measurements an analogue filtering down converter module to an IF of 100 MHz to 200 MHz for both channels is available.
