Abstract: A method is found for calculating the Ramanujan $ \tau $-Dirichlet series $ F(s)$. An inequality connecting points symmetric with the critical line, $ \sigma = 6$, is proved, and a table is given for $ \Gamma (s)F(s)$ for $ \sigma = 6.0,6.5,t = 0(.25)\,16$. Two zeros are found in $ 0 < t \leqq 16$; they appear to be simple and on the critical line.
