VLBI proposals for observing at 3mm wavelength (86 GHz) using the VLBA, GBT*, EFFELSBERG, PICO VELETA, ONSALA, METSAEHOVI, YEBES and KVN telescopes should be submitted by 1 AUGUST 2017 (UT 21:00).
Successful proposals will be considered for scheduling in GMVA Session I 2018 (12-17 April 2018) or in a later session.
Proposals for GMVA+ALMA observations may NOT be submitted at this deadline.
ALL PROPOSALS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED USING THE NRAO PROPOSAL SUBMISSION TOOL (PST): https://my.nrao.edu
In order to maximize the sensitivity for continuum observations the GMVA will record at the highest bitrate which instrumentation and resources permit. All telescopes will record at 2 Gbps except for the KVN, which will record in a compatible 1 Gbps mode. All data will be correlated at the Bonn DiFX software correlator.
* The GBT may be included in GMVA observations if a sufficiently compelling justification is given in the proposal but the amount of time available will be reduced compared to earlier observing semesters, and observing blocks greater than 6 hours will be very difficult to schedule.
The KVN can be selected using the “Other Stations” text field in the PST.
Note that NOEMA (on PLATEAU DE BURE) will not be available for GMVA sessions in 2018.
For further details on proposing, including the possibility of additional support observations at 7mm (43 GHz), please consult the administrative and technical information hosted at the MPIfR
