We present an overview of the instrumentation and scan strategy used to observe the cosmic microwave background radiation from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. This degree scale anisotropy experiment has maximum sensitivity at a coherence angle, $\theta_c=1.2^\circ$. Multifrequency and polarization coverage from 26 to 46 GHz is obtained with two independent radiometers which are used on an off-axis telescope. A discussion of systematic error discrimination and investigations will be presented.
