Cheng et al. (1994 [MSAM1-92 first flight], 1996 [MSAM1-94 second
flight], 1997 [MSAM1-95 third flight]) use 5-25 cm data from
the balloon-borne MSAM1 (Medium Scale Anisotropy Measurement 1)
experiment, in conjunction with foreground contamination data, to
constrain CMBR anisotropy.
The window functions, computed by A. Kosowsky, were provided by L. Page.
The first column in the window function file
is , which runs from
2 to 700. The second and third columns are the two- and three-beam zero-lag
The quoted bandtemperature values are from Wilson et al., with 5% added
in quadrature to their statistical 1 error bars to account for the
MSAM1 1 calibration uncertainty. They were computed for a flat
bandpower spectrum from a combined analysis of all the data.
