Complex Envelope Occultation Signals Data


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

Time span: 1979-03-05 to 1979-03-05


Complex envelope occultation signals data are on ASCII magnetic tape created on a Data General Eclipse S/250 computer. The first record on tape contains descriptive text and the values needed to compute event times, frequencies, sampling rates, and bandwidth. The first data record contains 13-cm (S-band) samples; then the next three contain 3.6-cm (X-band) samples. The pattern in groups of four records is repeated for the remainder of the tape. The first sample in an S-band record coincides with the first sample in the X-band record which immediately follows. It should be noted that the first S- and X-band data records on each tape begin with sample values of zero which result from the filtering methods and are required for time alignment.
