Upgrade of SRT1

In the summer of 2014, Dr. Stephen Ng and students in the department performed an upgrade of SRT1 with great help from Dr. Leung Chun Sing at PolyU and his friend Charles Chau. A digital filter was installed to reduce the radio frequency interference. New calibration and observations were subsequently carried out.
