That portion (lines 2825 through 4278) is not included in the database. The succeeding portion (lines 4279 through 8825) contains a relatively large number of below threshhold speeds. According to the recovery log, the current meter's rotor was slightly stiff on recovery, which may account for the low speeds. The speed series of this record contains a number of spikes that appear to be instrument errors. CMDAC has prepared an alternate version of the record in which the spikes have been removed by interpolation. Both versions of the record are available on this disk.
