Abstract : A magnetic tape recording system was developed in connection with attempts made to measure magnetic components of the electromagnetic field associated with nuclear detonation. The instrumentation described is considered satisfactory for the reproduction of data taken with this recorder, specifically those data recorded on Project 6.2 Operation Plumbbob. (The system was also applicable for reproducing Hardtack tapes). A seven-channel reproduce system was designed and constructed with capabilities to (1) reproduce magnetically- recorded signals over a frequency range from several c to over 200 kc within !1 db; (2) play back an AM and FM channel simultaneously; (3) obtain quick-look data reduction in the field; and (4) accomplish complete data analysis in the laboratory.
