Planetary Radio Astronomy Data

NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00059

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1977-09-05 to 1980-03-31

Description

These experimenter-supplied, planetary radio astronomy data are on binary magnetic tape created on an IBM 360 computer. Each 32,484-byte physical block contains forty 812-byte logical records. A data record consists of the date in year, month and day; spacecraft event time in elapsed milliseconds; telemetry mode (cruise mode data rates in frame completion times from 48s to 2880 s); and the averaged received power for all 199 frequencies in descending order over the frame (in millibels) for 70 low-frequency and 128 high-frequency channels. There is an extra frequency available in the high band corresponding to 40,550 kHz (although it is usually set to zero).
