    86 authors
    [2010A%26A...520A...5M]
    Contribution: I contributed to the calibration, at Jodrell Bank, of the front-end radiometers for the 30 and 44 GHz channels on LFI. I worked on the whole of LFI from the RAA to CSL test campaigns. These were really good experiences thanks to the LFI Instrument Team, although the tests were very long and tiring.

    Contribution: I helped speed up the development and verification of the front-end amplifiers described in this paper. I also played a large part in putting the paper together through many drafts. I helped create many of the figures.

    Contribution: I'm not an author on this paper but provided a minor contribution. Boud had been telling me about the paper during an OCRA-p meeting in Torun. I proposed the "butterfly projection" as having a better filling factor than the layout he was using (Figure 4).

    Contribution: Most of the data were collected by Marcin (second author). I did almost all of the data analysis and wrote a large portion of the paper. Peter Wilkinson and Ian Browne were also significant in writing the paper.

    Contribution: Other than getting OCRA-p working, my only real contribution to this paper was pointing out that the calibration was incorrect (at an early stage of the data analysis) and providing proof-reading comments.
