HELP SECTION

SY2TY
Type: Task
Use:  SY2TY reads EVLA SY and CD tables and writes a TY table
      containing Tsys.

      Note that the SY table must be used to calibrate EVLA data, Tsys
      alone will not suffice.  The raw "visibilities" from the EVLA
      Binary Data Format are not normalized correlation coefficients
      so they are not amplitude calibrated by scaling by Tsys.  In
      fact the scaling is sqrt (Tsys/Psum) of antenna 1 times sqrt
      (Tsys/Psum) of antenna 2.  Psum and Pdif can have jumps in them
      which scale out perfectly in Tsys but affect the raw
      "visibilities" as well.  This makes TYAPL needed to calibrate
      visibility by visibility rather than an interpolated calibration
      (SN table) such as is done in APCAL.
Adverbs:
  INNAME......Image name (name).       Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image name (class).      Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image name (seq. #).     0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk unit #.             0 => any.
  INVERS......Version number of SY table to be translated to TY.
  OUTVERS.....Version number of TY table created.
              0 => highest+1.
