Abstract: We have been looking into the possibility to subtract out the continuum contribution in spectral line databases from the ungridded visibilities. It turns out that our simple method offers quite interesting possibilities in a lot of practical cases. In this contribution we show how and why this method works. Details of this work can be found in van Langevelde and Cotton (1990). We have tried to compare the results of this method with the more conventional ways of subtracting the continuum. This comparison has to be done with simulations of which we show some results.
