This data set contains wave electric field amplitudes measured at four different frequencies by the Pioneer Venus Orbiter Electric Field Detector. The data are averaged over 24 second intervals on 12 second centers. Each averaging interval contains both the minimum amplitude, average amplitude and peak amplitude for that interval at each of the four frequencies. The four frequencies are 100 Hz, 730 Hz, 5.4 kHz, 30 kHz. The frequency filters are narrow-band, with a 30% bandwidth. Thus wave amplitudes are given in V/m/root(Hz). The filters are continuously active, but data are only provided at a rate determined by the spacecraft telemetry rate. The wave antenna is oriented perpendicular to the spacecraft spin axis, and so the wave instrument measures only wave fields in the spacecraft spin plane. The wave antenna is a small Y-shaped structure, with effective separation of 0.76 meters.
