Posted by tfolkers in Announcements, Observer Information.

Proposals are being solicited for observing time for the period February 15, 2010 – June 15, 2010, at the Arizona Radio Observatory, for the Sub-Millimeter Telescope (SMT) and the Kitt Peak 12 Meter. The SMT currently supports a dual-polarization, ALMA Band-6 1 mm receiver, a dual-polarization 0.8 mm receiver, and a new ALMA Band-9 (602-720 GHz) dual-polarization receiver. The 12 m supports 2 mm and 3 mm (65-176 GHz) dual-polarization receivers. A new ALMA Band-3 receiver is now available at the 12 m for 85-116 GHz band (3 mm HI), also dual-polarization. Remote observing is available at both ARO telescopes.
