HELP SECTION

HOLOG
Type: Task
Use:  HOLOG processes holography data.  It reads visibility data
      from a file and Fourier transforms it to produce the
      grading in the aperture plane of the antenna.  Up to nine
      different AIPS image files will be produced according to
      the options specified in DPARM.

      In the following description, (l,m) are the angular antenna
      offsets, while (u,v) are distances in the antenna aperture
      plane.

      The input data format is four free format ASCII encoded
      values per record:
          1) Azimuth offset from source (degrees)
                or true l (if APARM(2) <= 0)
          2) Elevation offset from source (degrees)
                or true m (if APARM(2) <= 0)
          3) Amplitude (Volts or dB) or Real (Volts)
          4) Phase (degrees) or Imaginary (Volts)

Adverbs:
  INFILE......Input visibility file name in the form AREA:FILE, where
              AREA is a directory logical name or environment
              variable, and FILE is an operating system specific file
              name.  If INFILE = 'ANT' or is blank, then INFILE will
              be set to
                          'FITS:HOLOnn-mmssii'
              where nn is the moving antenna number and mm is the
              reference antenna number (= 0 if more than one reference
              antenna is used), ss is the Stokes, and ii is the IF.
              If INFILE contains only a logical name, as INFILE =
              'AREA:', then 'AREA:HOLOnn-mmssii' will be used. The
              values of nn, mm, ss, and ii come from APARMs (9) and
              (10).
  OUTNAME.....Output image name (12 characters).  If the last 7
              characters are blank, they are set to 'nn-mmss'.

              (1) Type: 1 Gaussian, 2 Exponential, 3 Linear
              (2) Radius in cells for taper of 0.5.  0 => N/3.
              (Remember that the max radius of the data must be
              < N/2 just to avoid aliasing.)
  OPTYPE......The model used for removing the effects of primary focus
              offset.  'PFOC' = Prime Focus. 'SUBR' = Cassegrain
              system.  'SURP' = Cassegrain system with reference
              pointing  - default SUBR
  FACTOR......The magnification.  Used only if OPTYPE = 'SUBR', 'SURP'
Operating parameters: all are required (NO defaults).
  REFREQ......Use this as the reference frequency in GHz.  If 0, use
              the observing frequency found in the UVHOL output file
              (INFILE here).
  APARM(1)....Observing frequency (GHz). (ignored)
  APARM(2)....Satellite elevation, degrees. Set = -1. for VLA data

              deviation map.

  APARM(9)....10000 * Reference antenna number + 100 * 2nd (moving)

              from the data file is negated.  If the absolute value is

  BPARM(7,8)..Range of |x| and |y| used in correcting for pointing,
              focus, and feed offset.  Negative values give (min, max)

  BPARM(9)....Decimal encoded control parameters
                  1: If set, apply the subreflector rotation model.
