X-ray Light Curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA on day 142 (May 21) of 1996

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.
