Using Binary Decoder v3.1

Introduction

Analysis of 5 Pages of Binary Codes written down by former USAF S/Sgt. James Penniston on what he thinks was the morning of December 27, 1980 from scans of original notebook pages.

For each page, I have listed the ORIGINAL binary codes as they were displayed on the photo images of the original 5 pages. As best as possible, the spaces between groups of binary digits were preserved as written on the original pages.

The ARRANGED codes were modified ONLY by adding/removing spaces and moving bits from one line to the next to make obvious groups of 8. The Binary Decoder TOTALLY ignores spaces. So, they have no effect whatsoever in the decoding process.

When feeding the ARRANGED binary code into the Binary Decoder:

NO bits were moved out of relative position within the overall stream of bits.
NO bits were added or removed from the original source codes.
NO bits were modified from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0.

ONLY after seeing the results of the decoding from 8-bit binary ASCII into characters did I determine to add, remove or change bits where the resulting characters did not make any sense due to transmission errors of the binary bits. All such corrections are fully documented in my notes alongside the code.

I have presented the precise decoding (without any bit modification) of the original binary code into 8-bit ASCII characters as produced by the Binary Decoder, and then shown my interpretation after the inserting, removing or changing of bits to compensate for "transmission errors", and thus make the characters contextually relevant.

NOTE: Scroll all the way to the bottom to see the composite of the decoded Pages 1-5.
