COMMENT   This file contains hybrid beam maps constructed from data supplemented
COMMENT   with model predictions for the low signal-to-noise pedestals.  Data   
COMMENT   consist of sightings of Jupiter during the first 3 years of WMAP      
COMMENT   observations.  Model predictions were substituted for data at the     
COMMENT   17,17,18,19 and 20 dBi levels of K,Ka,Q,V and W, respectively.        
COMMENT   The hybrid beams provided in this file are for the                    
COMMENT   differencing assembly indicated by the DA keyword. The contents of the
COMMENT   four 600x600 arrays are identified as follows from the CTYPE3 value:  
COMMENT   1 = beam map for Side A, in mK, antenna temperature                   
COMMENT   2 = statistical noise for each side A pixel, in mK, antenna temp.     
COMMENT   3 = beam map for Side B, in mK, antenna temperature                   
COMMENT   4 = statistical noise for each side B pixel, in mK, antenna temp.     
COMMENT   Beam data are provided out to roughly 9.0, 6.5, 5.0, 2.5 and 2.5      
COMMENT   degrees from beam center for K, Ka, Q, V and W bands respectively.    
COMMENT   Pixels with no coverage have values of zero.  Beam response has  not  
COMMENT   been corrected for the input transmission imbalance (A/B asymmetry).  
COMMENT   Origin of the focal plane coordinates [Xbeam,Ybeam] is the primary    
COMMENT   optic axis for either the A or B side; the individual antenna feeds   
COMMENT   are clustered about this axis.
