Abstract: An observational test has been performed of the 'Homogeneous Array' concept utilized in the MMA design, whereby the array elements are used in total power mode to provide the shortest spacings. Using the VLA in interferometric mode and a VLBA element measuring total power, a mosaic image of the Crab Nebula has been reconstructed, which fits the data adequately and is of good visual appearance.
