Abstract : A series of measurements of the relative flux density of discrete radio sources was made at 475, 710, 958, 1420, and 2841 Mc/s, using a two-element interferometer. The flux density scale at each frequency was fixed by referring these relative intensities to a series of calibration sources whose spectra are reasonably well determined. A complete list of the measured flux densities is given here, along with a descrip tion of the experimental technique and a discussion of the sources of error. At each frequency the uncertainties in the relative flux densities are typically between five and ten per cent. Because of the similar observing and reduction technique employed at each frequency, the results form an especially self-consistent set of data, which is well suited for studies of radio spectra.
