simulator.setlimits - Function
2.4.1 Set limits for observing
Data are flagged for two conditions:
- Below elevation limit
- If either of the antennas point below the specified elevation limit then the data are flagged. The elevation is calculated correctly for antennas at different locations (such as occurs in VLBI).
- If one antenna shadows another such that the fractional (geometric) blockage is greater than the specified limit then the data are flagged. No correction for blockage is made for shadowed but non-flagged points.
Maximum fraction of geometrically shadowed area before flagging occurs
Minimum elevation angle before flagging occurs
