What Happened In order to have EDFs deidentified before being posted on the NSRR, the EDFs had their header start date set to "00.00.00". This seemed reasonable as it clearly indicated that the date had been removed, while adhering to the "dd.mm.yy" format for writing a date in the signal header. Keep reading
