Conclusion

As can be seen from figure 4, the galaxy HI signal is unaffected by the blanking process. However, the radar signal is almost eliminated due to blanking. This results in a smoother baseline which allows better estimation of the HI flux. The line profile could have been detected without any blanking and relatively little data need to be discarded for this.
