Z sources are bright neutron star X-ray binaries, accreting at around the Eddington limit. We analyze the 68 RXTE observations (~270 ks) of Sco-like Z source GX 17+2 made between 1999 October 3 and 12, covering a complete Z track. We create and fit color-resolved spectra with a model consisting of a thermal multicolor disk, a single-temperature-blackbody boundary layer and a weak Comptonized component. We find that, similar to what was observed for XTE J1701-462 in its Sco-like Z phase, the… Expand
