Abstract : A method is described for observing the slope of the spectra of solar radio-emission bursts using a radiometer which has two commutated heterodynes which are tuned to adjacent frequencies in the 3-cm region. Forty-three of the 50 observed bursts were treated. Of these, 33 show a change in the slope of the spectrum of the burst during its development with respect to the spectrum of the quiet sun. An overwhelming majority of the bursts have negative spectrum slopes, i.e., low frequencies predominate. Example of nine bursts are given with the slope of their spectra. (Author)
