Abstract
In order to check the system aspects of the forward-backward MSGC tracker d esigned for the future CMS experiment at LHC: 38 trapezoidal MSGC counters assembled in six multi-substrates detector modules were built and exposed t o a muon beam at the CERN SPS. Results on the gain uniformity along the wed ge-shaped strip pattern and across the detector modules are shown together with measurements of the detection efficiency and the spatial resolution.
