Sanborn Oscillogram Plots of Raw Telemetry Channel Data on Microfilm

NSSDCA ID: SPMS-00221

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

Time span: 1959-08-08 to 1959-10-03

Description

These data, supplied by the experimenter, consist of the Sanborn oscillograms recorded for the entire flight of Explorer 6 on 29 reels of 35-mm microfilm. The oscillograms are plots of frequency vs time for each telemetry channel. They were made from the analog magnetic tapes that were recorded at the Manchester, Hawaii, Cape Canaveral, and Singapore ground stations. Data set 59-004A-02C is also contained on these plots.
