General Issues

  • The invert task will not use data of one antenna if part of its spectrum has been flagged or missing, unless you specify the 'slop' keyword! (e.g. 'slop=1,zero' will replace all bad channels with 0.)
  • If a keyword is too long, for example the input of invert when mosaicing a very large area with hundreds of pointings, one can list all the input parameters in a file and use 'keyword=@filename'.
