Subject: Demod board measurements 

I measured the amplitude and phase imbalances of the demod boards which have been modified.  This is just a basic health check.  We hope to use the script that Kiwamu is developing for a more accurate test.  The script can also use these measurements as a sanity check.  POP110  requires some further attention.

The RF distribution box outputs corresponding to the demod board (eg. AS55_LO --> AS55_demod) were used as LO sources.  The RF signal was generated with a Marconi and held a kHz away from the LO frequency.  The amplitude and phase unbalance were measured with SR785.  The RF Power meter was used to check the LO power in each case.
