A full-size prototype of the second barrel RPC station (RB2) for the CMS detector has been tested under high-irradiation flux at the CERN Gamma Irradiation Facility (GIF) during the 1999 beam test. The main requirements of RPCs as trigger detector have been studied: cluster size, time resolution, efficiency and rate capability. The timing features of a new front-end electronics were also investigated. Only the results obtained with the detector working in single-gap mode are reported here.
