Variable Radio Sources at 843 MHz

  • D. Campbell-Wilson (a1) and R. W. Hunstead (a1)


This paper is a preliminary report on the flux density monitoring of calibration sources used at the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope. We show two examples of large amplitude variability at 843 MHz which we attribute to refractive scintillation in the Galactic interstellar medium.
