Hi,
   I have a source I would like to observe which is above the telemetry 
limits necessitating the use of pn burst mode. However, a 3% duty cycle 
reduces the countrate too much. Is it possible to vary the duty cycle 
in pn burst mode, say to 10%?
Thanks,
Duncan

No, this is not possible. The duty cycle is no free parameter that could
be adjusted by the guest observer.

Cheers,
Matthias.
