Abstract

Dally flux density measurements of 36 extragalactic radio sources over a seven year period, obtained by the Green Bank interferometer, reveal several unusual minima in the light curves that do not follow typical source variations (Fiedler et al. 1987). The most significant departure from typical source variability occurred at both frequencies in the quasar 0954+658 between 1980.95 and 1981.3. Refractive focussing by small scale inhomogeneities in an ionized structure in the interstellar medium appears to be the most likely explanation.
