Abstract

The solar brightness temperature was measured at frequencies of 19.0, 21.0, 22.2, 23.5, and 25.5 GHz on 8 days in February and March, 1966. The observed average brightness temperatures were 10 800, 10 900, 11 000, 10 700, and 9 800°K, respectively. The daily values were close to these averages.
