Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) Status 4 November 2013

Status, end of day November 4, 2013
Dennis Wingo: Well we ran four tapes today, with not one frame let captured. It looks like M2-M5 have no signal on them. There are test signals from the calibration at the start of the tape and there is a control track signal and audio, but no video signal at all…..
Finally found a signal when we got to tape M6.
Will start capturing image data from that tape in the morning. We don’t know if it is an error when they originally recorded the tape or not but it does point in that direction…….
Don’t know what images we lost yet but will figure it out in the morning….
