Abstract : Efforts are presented on a continuing program of angular size and brightness distribution measurements. One hundred eighty radio sources were observed with the variable spacing interferometer at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory. Results are presented for a group of 88 sources which were observed with both an east-west and a north-south baseline. All observations were made at a wavelength of 31.3 cm. (Author)
