KVN and VERA Array

Observation Mode

The K band and the Q band single-frequency single-polarization modes are available and a recording rate of 1024 Mbps (total bandwidth of 256 MHz) will be open for the 2016B CfP. Dual-beam mode with VERA and dual-polarization with KVN will not be available for the 2016B CfP. For accurate astrometric observations, many items (antenna positions, calibrators, schedule, etc.) should be carefully considered and prepared. At present, astrometric VLBI observations with KaVA is not supported in the 2016B CfP. Two new observation modes are available from this call, Fast antenna nodding mode and 1-beam hybrid (KVN multi-freuquency support) mode, as summarized in the appendix.
