Oral Presentation 1: Advances in VGOS Stations and Technology Oral1: Advances in VGOS Stations and Technology

The VGOS antenna Ws at Wettzell is equipped with an Elevenfeed, having a continuous frequency range from 2 GHz - 14 GHz. The receiving system with eight parallel intermediate frequency channels enables the use of four bands at different polarizations. A DBBC in combination with a FILA10G and a Mark6 System is used as backend. The presentation gives an overview about the current status of the broadband development and the recording systems installed at the Wettzell antenna Ws.
