The specification for a full-track one-quarter-inch (6.3-mm) width open-reel test tape has been published by EIA. It is for a dual-purpose tape for 3.75- and 7.5-in/s (95- and 190-mm/s) tape speeds, containing a reference flux per width (not program reference) of 100 nWb/m; a coarse and a fine asimuth adjusting section; and a point-by-point frequency response section following the NAB flux-frequency response with minor modifications. Extensive user instructions and comments on the development of the standard are included.
