From [1]

"The OV1-19 (1969-25 C) was launched 18 March 1969 into an elliptical orbit (3111. 1 x 250. 1 N. Mi.) with an inclination of 104.8º. Initial spin period was about 7 seconds (the spin was used to stabilize the spacecraft and also served a scanning function for directional detectors), increasing to over 10 seconds. Data was obtained both real-time and with a 4-hour tape recorder, although only the latter data was reduced for analysis routinely. The experiments included a small set of omnidirectional proton-electron spectrometers, a directional proton spectrometer, a Faraday Cup, magnetic electron spectrometers, dE/dX, E telescope, a Lyman-Alpha scanner, VLF receivers, and several dosimeters. Approximately 360 playbacks of the 4-hour tape recorder are available from the satellite over an 11-month period. This period encompasses several solar particle events plus several large isolated magnetic storms." [2] "NORAD ID: 3825 Int'l Code: 1969-025C Perigee: 491.9 km Apogee: 5,541.8 km Inclination: 104.7° Period: 150.9 min Semi major axis: 9,387.8 km Launch date: March 18, 1969" [3] "The OV1 (Orbiting Vehicle 1) were small research satellite to be launched piggy back on Atlas ICBM test flights. They consisted in general of the OV1 satellite and the OV1-PM propulsion module (or upper stage) to reach orbit. Only OV1-1 and OV1-3 were launched on an ICBM, while all other Atlas flights were dedicated launches." [4]
