We have analyzed observations from a radioas- tronomical experiment to survey the sky at decimetric wavelengths along with feed pattern measurements in or- der to account for the level of ground contamination enter- ing the sidelobes. A major asset of the experiment is the use of a wire mesh fence around the rim-halo shielded an- tenna with the purpose of levelling out and reducing this source of stray radiation for zenith-centered 1-rpm circu- lar scans. We investigate the shielding…
