In a reanalysis of Mikhailov's experiments, it is argued that observations of magnetic chargeg=(1/2)(1/137)(1/3)e on ferromagnetic aerosols are incorrect. Future experiments of the type conducted by Mikhailov must take into an account the component of particle velocity orthogonal toE andH. It is shown that Mikhailov's data are consistent with the existence of a Dirac unit of magnetic chargeg=(137/2)e found in meson spectroscopy.
