C Master Data Records

All information received by the DSN from the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft was stored in the form of Master Data Records, which were structured as shown in the table below. As the structure demonstrates, in addition to the 6-bit data words (see Appendix D) encoded in the data frames, the MDRs also contain information about the receiving DSN station [4021072849899100].
