Prior to the launch of the IDE satellite in early 1978, the only symbiotic star previously detected in the ultraviolet by earlier UV satellites, such as the OAO-2, TD-1 and ANS experiments, was AG Pegasi = HD 207757 (Gallager et al. 1979). These broad-band observations indicated that the symbiotics as a class may show a significant ultraviolet flux and thus they became natural candidates for a survey with the IUE satellite. The following is an interim report on a survey of the symbiotics, both at low and, for AG Pegasi and CH Cygni, at high resolution.
