I was invited to discuss three "tapes" that a colleague has that appears
to be about one-inch wide, on metal reels with a hub smaller than an NAB
or DATA hub. The bottom metal flange had a flat ring on the outside
(much like the Magnetophon reels).
This tape is CLEAR and appears to be a relative of the Recordgraph
Amertape system, although my vague recollection was that system
scratched a wider or narrower track in the coating of the film. This one
is using clear film. There are three reels.
Here is the best image of the ones I received showing the recorded? surface.
Any ideas? The reels are marked "Honeywell." The latest one (1976) is
marked "High Density 555." The reels are about 10-12 inches in diameter.
The recordings are 1963-1976.
From the marked contents, and the little background I have, I would
expect these contain testimony or discovery type information from
Yet another format...
Any and all help is appreciated.
