Abstract : During March-June, 1964, measurements of the flux density of the sources Cassiopeia A, Taurus A, Cygnus A, and the Orion Nebula were made at the Algonquin Radio Observatory. The procedure involved a null balancing technique to minimize possible gain variations; transits with fixed antenna position to eliminate background contributions; and comparison of the recorded source intensities with the emission from heated resistive terminations to establish absolute temperature measurements.
