4.30. Color bands

On the MAWS data sheet only, there is a field of five columns in which to encode the color bands, if any.

A valid color-band field must contain from one to four color codes, with the left-leg bands preceding and the right-leg bands following a slash (“/”). Color codes must be one of:

S Service (metal) band
K Black
W White
R Red
G Green
Y Yellow
B Blue
O Orange
M Mauve
? Can't tell, or can't read the banding sheet.
