Abstract

Radio thermal bremsStrahlung emission has now been detected at centimeter wavelengths from about thirty symbiotic stars. These data combined with optical and IR data show that the radio emission in most systems may be understood in terms of the ionization of part of the wind of a red giant by a hot companion. The radio properties of symbiotic stars are reviewed and the agreement with and the limitations of this picture are examined.
