Notes on individual channels

All 37 channels of SABOCA are working fine. Between March 2009 and March 2010, all backend signals are inverted, which has to be taken care of during data reduction

Channel #Description
22 This channel is somewhat variable. Verify the gain on your calibrator data.

# Handle inverted channels (all):
data.Data *= array(-1,'f')
