Distances to MMA Calibrators Based on 90 GHz Source Counts

October, 1994

Keywords: calibrators, source counts, fast switching

We use Monte Carlo simulations to estimate the typical distances to millimeter phase calibration sources based on 90 GHz source counts. We find that there is a 70% chance of finding a calibrator with a flux density of at least 100mJy within 2 degrees of a random point on the sky.
