Note that the frequency for the coherence tone refers to the output of the CH 1 band splitter beneath the frequency translator (rack 6). A tone at the given frequency should return a 5 MHz coherence signal from the CH 1 band splitter.

SMY01 should be used for the channel 1 LO of the frequency translator and the SML for channel 2. The upper SMX is used for the tone.

Note that the frequency for the coherence tone refers to the output of the CH 1 band splitter beneath the frequency translator (rack 6). A tone at the given frequency should return a 5 MHz coherence signal from the CH 1 band splitter.

For the v271f & v252s experiments, we need to be able to change these remotely. If we use SMY01 and SMY02 then Bev doesn’t need to make an extra trip out to the station. This does mean that we won’t be able to check coherence though.
