        [FLUX\]SOLVE [Name1 [Name2 [...]]]

    Use  the sources Name1, Name2, etc... as flux references.  For a planet,
    the flux is derived using the gain USB/LSB and  the  frequency  informa-
    tions.  For  other  sources,  the  flux specified by command SET FLUX is
    used. Without argument, all the planets included in the input  file  are
    used to calculate the antenna efficiency.

    The  fluxes  of all sources is computed as described below at the ``gain
    corrected'' frequency:
        F = ( F(LSB) + G x F(USB) ) / (1+G)
    where G is the USB to LSB receiver gain ratio.

    The computation steps are
       + Correct Azimuth subscan for elevation pointing error
       + Correct Elevation subscan for azimuth pointing error
       + Average both subscans to derive the source intensity
            (with proper weighting using standard deviations)
       + Average all independant scans on the same source
            (with proper weighting)
       + Determine the  average antenna efficiency from the list of
            sources of known flux, with error estimate
       + Determine the unknown fluxes, giving the error estimates:
            Relative, including only errors on the source intensity, and
            Absolute which also includes the error on antenna efficiency.
