SABOCA Array Parameters

Here we collect the array parameter files for all SABOCA observing intervals at APEX. For the reduction of a project which was observed during a given interval, download the corresponding rcp-file and include it into your BoA session or reduction macro via updateRCP('filename'). You should also check the lists of suspicious channels (if there are any) and exclude them from your data reduction, if necessary. See the BoA User Manual for further details.

The results presented here should not prevent you from checking your target data for bad channels (i.e. showing excess noise). The MBFITS raw data files for all beammaps should be available from the ESO data archive.
