We describe the calibration of a forward, high-resolution, drift chamber spectrometer used in a series of high energy experiments at Fermilab. We discuss the position-time calibration, the overall performance, and the spatial resolution, obtained under data-taking conditions for two kinds of field-shaping wire geometries.
