Sensitivity and observing time estimator for spectral line and position switching observing mode.

To take into account calibration, pointing, focus, and instrumental deadtimes, the calculator includes an overall efficiency of 60% between the total telescope elapsed time and the integration time (on+off). This time/sensitivity estimator gives results derived from averaging the two polarizations for the 6, 22, and 45 GHz receivers.
