1Note: the synthesized beam and maximum recoverable scale are tabulated for a frequency of 100 GHz. To calculate these quantities for a given frequency (measured in GHz), multiply the tabulated values by (100 / frequency). 

2LBR = Long Baseline Reconfiguration. ACA and Total Power Observations only.
