1  Previously we used the global fit result from BURKARD 1985B in OUR AVERAGE, we now only include their actual measurement.
2  $\alpha $ = $\alpha {{}^\prime}$ = 0 assumed.
3  Global fit to all measured parameters. The fit correlation coefficients are given in BURKARD 1985B.
4  ${{\mathit \rho}}$ constrained = 0.75.
5  Two parameter fit to ${{\mathit \rho}}$ and ${{\mathit \eta}}$; PLANO 1960 discounts value for ${{\mathit \eta}}$.
