PaKo Revisions

In normal project accounts there are 2 aliases defined to start pako:

alias pako="/local/users/pako/Development/gildas-src/packages/pako/main/pako.exe"

alias pakoOld="/local/users/pako/Development/gildas-src/packages/pako/main/pakoOld.exe"

Also see:

How to start paKo in an NCS project account

Of course, pako versions can also be started directly by giving the full path and file name, e.g.:

/local/users/pako/Development/gildas-src/packages/pako/main/History/pako-2006-02-17v1.0.2.exe

NOTE: there is no guarantee that "historic" (see below) versions of pako can be used for meaningful observations.

Current and old versions of the users manual in PDF format, including a reproduction of the HELP information, are available on the NCS WWW pages at:

http://www.iram.es/IRAMES/documents/ncs30mPako/

Below we give some notes on various pako revisions.

Historic Versions

NOTE: there is no guarantee that "historic" versions of pako can be used for meaningful observations.

PAKO> help receiver /temp
RECEIVER /TEMPLOAD
    /TEMPLOAD tempColdLoad tempAmbientLoad
    /TEMPLOAD L[OOKUP]     L[OOKUP]
    /TEMPLOAD *            ...

    Set effective temperatures for the calibration loads at cold and ambient
    temperature.

    Real      :: tempColdLoad      !
    Real      :: tempAmbientLoad   !

    NEW LOGIC FOR SINGLE-PIXEL SIS RECEIVERS (FROM SUMMER 2007, paKo v1.0.7)

    If a numerical value is entered for tempColdLoad or tempAmbientLoad,
    that value is used for calibration calculations.

    Instead of specifying a value one may enter the string L(OOKUP) for
    tempColdLoad and/or tempAmbientLoad.  This is shown in the pakoDisplay
    by the letter "L" instead of a number.

    In this case, during the execution of the observations, the NCS will
    use the "best-known" values for the corresponding load temperature(s).
    For tempColdLoad this is based on a lookup table, for tempAmbientLoad
    it is derived from a measurement of the physical temperature.
