Abstract

A record medium has an upper data signal area for receiving information-bearing data signals and a buried servo signal area for permanently retaining, preferably, a single frequency servo signal, for indicating a location of a data signal track. A single gap head cooperates with both areas for transferring signals between the circuits and the record medium (Fig. 1).
