Good Io-C at Nancay on 110707

Close to pure Right Circular Polarization, not generally expected for Io-C, generated by southern Jovian magnetosphere cyclotron masers. Io-A and Io-B are generated by northern magnetosphere masers; Io-C and Io-D by southern magnetosphere masers. In 5 years time, I hope Juno flies through some of those masers.
