End of Cycle 2

1The parenthetical numbers are added to indicate that the configuration is expected to contain sufficient baselines to approximate either configuration.

2Note: 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).
