WEIGHTIT
Type: Adverb  (scalar)
Use:  A code controlling the modification of data weights prior to
      their use in gain solutions and fringe fitting.  Weighting by
      uncertainty squared may be too extreme a method, down-weighting
      outer antennas excessively and producing failed solutions.
      Weighting linearly by uncertainty may be more stable.
      Values:
          0 - no change   weighting by 1/sigma**2
          1 - sqrt (wt)   weighting by 1/sigma may be more stable
          2 - (wt)**0.25  weighting by 1/sqrt(sigma)
          3 - wt -> 1.0   no weighting
Null value:  0
Tasks:
   CALIB.....determines antenna calibration: complex gain
   FRING.....fringe fit data to determine antenna calibration, delay,
             rate
   KRING.....fringe fit data to determine antenna calibration, delay,
             rate
