-The second option is to turn on baseline-based calibration,​ BUT ONLY AFTER VERY CAREFUL CONSIDERATION. In an ideal world, baseline-based calibration would never be necessary. However, I have witnessed situations using hardware-correlator data in which residual gain errors on baselines did not seem to be solely antenna-based. Baseline-based calibration is something to try as a last resort, and can be switched on in the pipeline as shown below. Please note that this is implemented under strict limitations:​ baseline-calibration is applied only in the final stages of the processing, and is determined on a per-observation base (meaning only one correction per observe session).+The second option is to turn on baseline-based calibration,​ BUT ONLY AFTER VERY CAREFUL CONSIDERATION.
