Parkes observations for project P737 semester 2019APRS_04
The aim of this proposal is to carry out tests of the new backend instruments which cannot be carried out during standard maintenance periods. The scheduled time is used to measure beam shapes, determine polarisation calibration solutions and commission the National Facility observing modes for the new wide-band receiver.

P737 - Commissioning the pulsar backends at Parkes
Pulsar observations using the Parkes radio telescope have led to some of the most exciting astronomical results in the last few years. The Parkes backend suite is currently being improved with new instruments becoming available and older instruments being decommissioned. The aim of this proposal is to carry out tests of the new backend instruments ... morewhich cannot be carried out during standard maintenance periods. less
