[ARSCLIST] Magnetic Tape Terminology
Question for today: what, if anything, is the physical difference
between a "channel" and a "track" when speaking about magnetic tape?
Are the terms just used to describe different ways in which the same
physical phenomenon (separate bands of information on the magnetic tape)
can be employed, or is there not even a difference on that level?
