This system can be used for sensitive continuum, spectroscopy, and pulsar observations. Additionally, it will be employed in search-programs for space-debris. Be aware, that this band may be influenced by RFI. The central horn has two circular polarizations, each of the outer six horns two linear polarizations.

Note that the narrow line and VLBA IF channels are usually only available when the specific line version of the receiver was selected. In addition for most receivers with narrow line channels the cables at the patch board need to be connected by the receiver group.
To select different channel numbers in OBSINP, the online plot, or the toolbox the numbers have to be specified like c(1)+c(2) to add channel 1 and 2. E.g. channel 1 and 2 contain the LCP and RCP broadband channels, then "OnlPlot pen='c(1)+c(2)'" or "toolbox use='c(1)+c(2)'" will select these channels. In OBSINP the pen can be directly specified in the receiver selection menu.
