Abstract : This report presents a UHF Telemeter System that was flown on Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories Aerobee rocket AF3.268 on 13 December 1967 at the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The purpose of the test was to assist in the preparation for a smooth transition to the UHF telemeter bands by 1 January 1970. A discussion of the instrumentation includes two PAM/FM/FM telemetry systems, one at VHF and the other at UHF. Data from the test flight is presented for comparison. This includes AGC records and demodulated waveforms. (Author)
