Sensitivity and observing time estimator for spectral lines.

This calculator works with total telescope time (as either input or output), automatically taking into account calibration, pointing, focus, and instrumental deadtimes. This time/sensitivity estimator gives results derived from averaging the two polarizations for the 6, 22, 45 and 87 GHz receivers.
