Eight observing bands are currently available observations. They are designated bands 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. The nominal frequency & wavelength ranges are:
|Band||Frequency Range||Wavelength Range|
|5||158 - 211||1.42 - 1.90|
These are the nominal frequency ranges for continuum observations. The OT will give validation warnings if a) any part of a spw is closer than 30 MHz to the baseband edge or b) more than half of the spw is within (30 MHz + the line width) of the baseband edge.
