A Gerdien condenser system for measuring stratospheric charged particles densities is described. The system makes use of commercially available blowers to obtain the bulk gas flow through the condenser and a time of charge method for measuring collected currents. System modifications made over several balloon flights are described and the results of one flight are presented in some detail. Author
