The Medium Scale Anisotropy Measurement (MSAM) made successive observations of a common patch of sky in the spring of 1992 and 1994, for the purpose of determining the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) Anisotropy at half-degree scales. Although the previously published analysis of the 1992 data neglected correlations introduced by drift removal, we account for for them here with a reanalysis of the 1992 data. A statistical comparison of the two flights is shown, and the implications for past and future CMB experiments are discussed.
