Abstract
Arrays of limited streamer tubes of the Iarocci type were deployed in our e xperiment at CERN as part of a forward muon detector system with provisions for the beam to pass through the center of each panel in the array. A tota l of 16 4 m x 4 m panels were assembled with inductive readout strips on bo th sides of each panel. An active feedback system. was deployed to regulate the high voltage to the streamer tubes to insure a constant efficiency for minimum ionizing particles. The arrays were operated in this environment f or over five years of data taking. Streamer tube track-reconstruction effic iencies and tube replacement rates are reported.
