The radio telescope was in operation during the entire report period. The difficulties with electronic equipment experienced during the previous period have been remedied and data were acquired during all suitable observing periods. An additional tuning-fork-controlled sidereal clock was constructed and placed in operation, preparatory to the installation of digital recording equipment. Studies of possible data-digitizing schemes were continued and one such scheme was chosen as a first experiment. Routine maintenance of the reflector and tower structure was continued at the accelerated rate which is usual in summer. Analysis of the data was continued at an accelerated rate, and various computer programs to assist in this work were written and checked. Author
