The performance of F101 lead glass as a Cherenkov radiation material was studied. A 3 x 3 array of 9 x 9 cm(2) and 50 cm length counters showed an energy resolution of approximate to 5.0%/root E(GeV), good linearity in the energy range from 1 to 25 GeV and pi(-)/e rejection of approximate to 4 x 10(-4).
