Calibrated data from three orbits of S-Band (13 cm wavelength) Magellan bistatic radar data collected with NASA antenna DSS 63 on 5 June 1994 when the specular point crossed Maxwell Montes. Similarly processed data were used by Pettengill et al. (SCIENCE, 272, 1628-1631, 1996) to infer existence of a semiconductor layer covering anomalously reflecting regions at high altitude on Venus. This new data set includes calibrated time samples of receiver output as well as calibrated power spectra and voltage cross spectra (between the two received polarizations). The data set was written to three DVD+R volumes for delivery to the NASA Planetary Data System (PDS).
