The IF bandwidth of all heterodyne receivers is 500 MHz, except for 230G2 which, coupled to the 1MHz filter bank, has a 1 GHz bandwidth. The following table lists the present possible receiver combinations:

Rec. Combinations
Receivers 4-Rec. 3-Rec.
3mm1 * * * *
3mm2 * *
2mm *
230G1 * * * *
230G2 * *

The second 3 mm receiver (3mm2) can be used simultaneously with the 3mm1 receiver and the 230G1 with a high efficiency. Four receiver operation (3mm1+3mm2+230G1+230G2) is possible, but it results in a significant increase in the noise of 230G2.
