 +   Subject: EVNtech: First K-band e-EVN, first e-VLBI fringes to Mh
 +   
 +   
 +   Hi,
 +   
 +   Today we had an e-VLBI fringe test in K-band, prior to the F07K1
 +   ftp test. The participating telescopes were Cm, Jb2, Mc, Mh, and On60.
 +   The data rate was 256 Mbps. This was our first e-VLBI test at 1.cm,
 +   and the first one with Metsahovi.
 +   
 +   The test was a complete success, with fringes to all telescopes
 +   (see attached plot; note that Cm bandwidth is limited to 128 Mbps
 +   because of the microwave link). Onsala had a new dualpol K-band
 +   receiver which performed very well. The Jb and Cm sensitivities may
 +   have been a bit worse than expected, likely due to the windy weather
 +   or pointing.
 +   
 +   Regards,
 +   Zsolt
