2. CALL FOR PROPOSALS WITH THE OVRO MILLIMETER-WAVE ARRAY
Deadline: 1 September 2000
The California Institute of Technology invites observing proposals for the Owens Valley Radio Observatory (OVRO) 6 element millimeter wave interferometer. The deadline for proposals is 1 September 2000 for observations between September 2000 through January 2001. The OVRO interferometer operates in the 3mm and 1mm bands, and can achieve an angular resolution between 1-10" in the high, equatorial, low, and compact configurations. Instructions for submitting proposals and technical information about the interferometer can be found at the OVRO web site at
Questions concerning the interferometer or proposal submission may be directed toward John Carpenter at mailto:email@example.com (phone: 626-395-4024).
3. CALL FOR PROPOSALS WITH FCRAO 14 METER TELESCOPE
Deadline: 15 September 2000
The Five College Radio Astronomy Observatory solicits proposals for observations with the FCRAO 14 meter telescope. The deadline for proposal submission is 15 September 2000. The telescope is equipped with a 16 element focal plane array receiver (SEQUOIA) which is comprised of low noise MMIC amplifiers with SSB receiver noise temperatures of 75 K. The frequency range of the receiver is 85-115 GHz. In the Fall 2000, a new autocorrelation spectrometer system will enable simultaneous observations of 2 frequencies within the 85-100 GHz
or 100-115 GHz bands with 50 MHz bandwidth for each frequency.
