HELP SECTION

AMKAT
Type:  Task
Use:   MeerKAT has a fixed station ID sequence but numbers antennas
       sequentially.  Any missing antennas in a data set cause the
       antenna numbers to fail to identify the station numbers.
       Among other issues caused by this is a serious failure of
       DBCON when trying to combine 2 MeerKAT data sets.  This task
       renumbers antennas so that AIPS antenna numbers are the station
       ID number plus one.
Adverbs:
  INNAME.....Input UV name (name).           Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....Input UV name (class).          Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......Input UV name (seq. #).         0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Disk drive # of input.       0 => any.
  OUTNAME....Output UV name (name).           Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS...Output UV name (class).          Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ.....Output UV name (seq. #).         0 => highest.
  OUTDISK....2nd Disk drive # of output.       0 => any.
