Hi, Darren,

Yes, the logging versions (and there were many) of the C27x series can 
play these.

The radio stations and loggers I'm familiar with used 15/32 which 
allowed for slightly more than 24 hours on one 3600 foot reel of tape. 
ABC-TV used 7" Maxell 3600' tapes on Dictaphone loggers (4 tracks) and 
they were a mess with the very thin tape, the wow and flutter were 
extremely high.

I forget, were you the person who was looking for the 5-track head a 
while ago for logging tape recovery? Did you ever get that project 
completed?

Cheers,

Richard
