During the interval April-August 1998, we performed a series of observations of the Vela Pulsar with RXTE, totaling approximately 300 ksec. Simultaneously, we performed radio observations capable of measuring individual pulse arrival times and intensities for the faintest to the brightest pulses emitted. The goals of our analyses are, first, to search for correlations between radio and X-ray pulse properties by using subsets of the single pulses measured in radio to select corresponding subsets of the X-ray data for epoch folding; and, second, to use this deeper observation to elaborate on features we observed during our previous RXTE Vela study. We present preliminary results of these studies.
