Negative Results with NGC300

After a week or so collecting NGC300 data and integrating there is no verifiable result. As forewarned in 'External Galaxies', this target appears to be beyond the capabilities of the system described here. As noted there...

"Looking at the LAB Survey results for a 6° beamwidth, the comparison shows NGC300 is nearly 9 dB down on the brightness temperature of M33...

...and while the radial velocities are virtually mirror-images of each other, NGC300 is closer to the 0 km/s rest velocity - further complicating the extraction of the NGC300 signal from the foreground 'Milky Way' HI signals."

A combination of a weak source, a less-than-optimum system and local RFI are likely the cause of the negative result.
