DESCRIPTION

SINBAD is a MIRIAD task to calculate (ON-OFF)/OFF*TSYS for autocorrelation data. The preceeding OFF and TSYS record for each antenna is used. When flags on the OFF scans are bad, the scan is now ignored as an OFF scan. Flags on the ON scans are copied to the output file. Only valid ON scans are copied to the output file. Missing TSYS can be replaced via the tsys= keyword as a last resort, or the spectral window based systemp() UV variable that should be present in normal MIRIAD datasets. For baseline subtraction, see: SINPOLY For single dish mapping, see: VARMAPS  

PARAMETERS

vis
The name of the input autocorrelation data set. Only one name must be given.
select
The normal uv selection commands. See the Users manual for details. The default is to process all data.
line
The normal uv linetype in the form:
  line,nchan,start,width,step
The default is all channels. The output consists of spectral channels only.
out
The name of the output uv data set. No default.
tsys
Value for flat tsys spectrum if neither band average systemp nor full spectrum is available.
options
Different computational output options (mainly for debugging). Exclusively one of the following (minimum match):
  'spectrum'     Compute Tsys*(on-off/off).  This is the default
  'difference'   Compute (on-off)
  'ratio'        Compute on/off
slop
Allow some fraction of channels bad for accepting Default: 0
