In the Soviet RKS-2 radiosonde a goldbeaters skin hygrometer is used for measuring humidity. To check its long-term stability, which of course is highly dependent on the history or aging of the measurement elements, there recently was presented an opportunity to examine a large number of goldbeaters skin hygrometers of a sonde delivery some three years old in relationship to their storability and the reproducibility of calibration values. The results obtained are reported.
