Current Status of the observational system

Last update: see bottom right

Despite the current Coronoa epidemic, the observatory is still operational, but with a considerably reduced staff. We can currently not foresee when the situation will return to a normal state.

Receivers currently installed at the prime focus:

ReceiverStatus
P210-7ok
P200ok

Receivers currently available in the secondary focus:

ReceiverStatus
S130ok 
S110ok, but beware of RFI 
S60ok, only one horn available 
S45ok
S36ok 
S28ok 
S20ok 
S14ok 
S9please contact staff 
S7ok, one channel in off-horn broken 

The S-band has recently heavily been occupied by RFI (due to LTE). Observations with the 11cm-receiver should use the 8-bank polarimeter.
