Code to read spectrogram file

        in Julian Date, frequencies in GHz, and cross-power data in sfu.
        
        Return Keys:
          'time'     Numpy array of nt times in JD format
          'fghz'     Numpy array of nf frequencies in GHz
          'data'     Numpy array of size [nf, nt] containing cross-power data
