FAST is rapidly preparing to begin all-sky pulsar and HI survey work with their 19-beam feed array. I have been working with a set of data--1 msec sampling rate, 4096 frequency channels covering 1.00 to 1.50 GHz, two polarizations for each of the 19 beams. I'll show these data, discuss calibration and analysis techniques, comment on data quality and the interference environment and plans for the observations.
