hi-reference signal

The audio-frequency signal transmitted by the Diamond–Hinman radiosonde when the baroswitch pen passes each fifteenth contact of the commutator, up to a number determined by the design of the commutator, and each fifth contact thereafter.

This signal is transmitted so that the pressure, temperature, and humidity may be more readily distinguished.
