Workspace Method sensor_responseGenericAMSU


Simplified sensor setup for an AMSU-type instrument.

This function is derived from 'sensor_responseSimpleAMSU' 
but is more generalized since the number of passbands in each 
can be in the range from 1 to 4 - in order to correctly simulate
AMSU-A type sensors 

This method allows quick and simple definition of AMSU-type
sensors. Assumptions:

1. Pencil beam antenna.
2. 1-4 Passband/sidebands per channel.
3. Sideband mode "upper"
4. The channel response is rectangular.

Under these assumptions the only inputs needed are the LO positions,
the offsets from the LO, and the IF bandwidths. They are provided
in sensor_description_amsu.
