X-ray light curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA with 1-sec time resolution binning. The source was observed from May 21 14:01 to 14:48, 1996 (UT), and this light curve covers from 14:02:23-14:49:04. We detected no burst. We could not find any evidence of ~2Hz pulsation in the power spectrum, either. Due to the problem with low temperature the observation was performed with 3 PCU's at first, but during the observation PCU #4 and #5 were turned on at 14:36:40 (bin #2057) and 14:37:55 (bin #2132), respectively. PCU #4 was turned off again soon after the GOOD TIME of the observation ended at ~14:48:08 (bin #2744). PCU #5 also turned off lately at ~14:48:08. This light curve includes background counts of roughly 20-30 counts/bin/PCU. A sharp peak at the end of the observation is a source detected during slew to another target.
