Abstract: The inversion-rotation spectrum of HF---HF has been investigated with the RAD-3 spectrometer at Gorky (1) in the frequency range 180-380 GHz at 210 K and pressures from 0.5 to 1.5 Torr. The spectrum was reexamined in the range 60-125 GHz with a conventional Stark spectrometer at pressures of 0.1 to 0.2 Torr and at temperatures near 195 K at NIST. Altogether 19 P-, Q-, and R-branch lines of the $K=3$ a-type inversion-rotation subband have been observed. The rotational constants of this subband are somewhat anomalous as compared with the previously observed lower K subbands (2). For example, B'-B'' for this subband is positive while this difference is negative for the lower K transitions, and the Q-branch degrades to lower frequencies. The assignment, however, is well established by the missing lines in the Q- and P-branches. The inversion frequency for $K=3$ is 114 307.04(46) MHz which is in good agreement with the value of 114 790(150) MHz obtained by von Puttkamer et al. (3) from far IR studies. High J R-branch lines of the $K=O$ through $K=2$ subbands which fall in the higher frequency region have also been identified and improved rotational constants for these states obtained. (1) S.P.
