Tiny tool to apply a numpy boolean array to the spectral flags column of a measurement set to mask out known RFI sources like GSM and satelite in L-band. Typically flagging known RFI sources produces much better backgrounds and tools like the mighty AOFlagger RFI hammer needs fewer iterations to converge to good solutions.
