Abstract : Variations in the intensities of three quasi-stellar radio sources at 3.75 cm wavelength have been reported by Dent. It is obviously very important to confirm the presence of these variations and to establish the way they depend on observing wavelength; a knowledge of the wavelength dependence of the variations is an essential prerequisite to their theoretical interpretation. Observations made with the interferometer at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory have confirmed the intensity variations in all three sources reported by Dent. They also indicate that the variations cut off at long wavelengths, which is the behavior expected from theoretical considerations. (Author)
