The report describes experiments on the stability of an STA standard 10 degree cone. The free oscillation experiments on a sting mounted, open base model used an Optron tracker to register the models oscillation about zero angle of attack. Values of the static and dynamic pitching moment stability derivatives are given for independent combinations of nine initial oscillation amplitudes between 12 degrees and 5 degrees, five reduced frequencies omega d2V between .0025 and .007, two pivot axis locations x sub cgl 55 and 60, and two nominal Mach numbers M 12 and 14.
