About the paper

Keywords: VLBI, Astrometry, C-Band

Yunnan Astronomical Observatories (YNAO) is located in Kunming, Yunnan province, has a 40 m Radio Telescope which is part of the Chinese VLBI Network (CVN). Kunming station have installed a new C-Band receiver, so we can carry on more international VLBI observations in C-band, and will soon to be one of EVN stations. We got the first fringes with EVN fringe-test experiment in C-band last month. The Kunming station shows its good compatibility to work with the EVN in C-band.
