Beamforming on B0031-07

Required: >= v3.2.1

Calibration (Hyperdrive, 1320412440)

#cd /astro/mwaeor/MWA/data/1090008640
METAFITS=/astro/mwavcs/asvo/252007/1320412440.metafits
 
if [[ ! -r srclist_1000.yaml ]]; then
   hyperdrive srclist-by-beam -n 1000 -m ${METAFITS} --tile-flags 57 /pawsey/mwa/software/python3/srclists/master/srclist_pumav3_EoR0aegean_fixedEoR1pietro+ForA_phase1+2.txt srclist_1000.yaml
fi
 
hyperdrive di-calibrate -s srclist_1000.yaml -d /astro/mwavcs/asvo/252007/*.fits ${METAFITS}

This outputs hyperdrive_solutions.bin. The --tile-flags 57 corresponds to TileName HexE2. It is used because doing it without shows the amplitudes for that tile are much higher than the others.

Using these solutions in vcsbeam requires >= v2.19.13.

Plot Hyperdrive solutions
$ mwa_plot_calibration -m 1320499816_legacy.metafits -c 1320412440.fits -C hyperdrive_solutions.bin -R NONE -U 0,0 -O -X -z nan > solution.txt
$ plot_calibration.py --phases_png phases.png --amps_png amps.png solution.txt


Weirdly, even though I flagged HexE2 in Hyperdrive (corresponding to Antenna #57), it still shows up in these solution plots. This might be a bug in Hyperdrive. Fornow, I'll just also flag it when I try to beamform.

Beamforming

All 24 channels

Beamforming directly from MWAX (which does the fine PFB on GPU memory) requires >= 3.2.1.

Set up initial RTS job

First, we need a calibration metafits file (mode = 'HW_LFILES'), which for the moment I edited by hand. It doesn't matter whether the file is one with PPDs or without, but apparently some script somewhere is expected the file to be called \[obsid\]_metafits_ppds.fits. So I manually edited the (MWAX VCS) metafits file and just changed the mode, and then made a symbolic link to is called /astro/mwavcs/vcs/1320499816/cal/1320499816/rts/1320499816_metafits_ppds.fits. Then I ran the script from VCSTools:

Run the RTS
cd /astro/mwavcs/vcs/1320499816/cal/1320499816/rts
$ calibrate_vcs.py -O 1320499816 -o 1320499816 -m 1320499816_metafits_ppds.fits -s ../srclist_pumav3_EoR0aegean_EoR1pietro+ForA_1320499816_patch1000.txt --offline --nosubmit

There's no good reason I couldn't have left off the --nosubmit option and had it run, but I just wanted to check it worked before trying it.
