Abstract : A survey of reported radio observations of solar eclipses is presented. The eclipse has revealed the radio spectra of the solar centers of activity, the contribution of the corona to meter wavelength solar flux, the radio diameter of the sun at various wavelengths, and the height of the emitting regions. Eclipse studies have shown the portions of the radio spectrum where limb brightening is observed as well as those characterized by limb darkening. Through a detailed study of the results of major eclipses which have been observed, many aspects of solar radio measurements are considered. Appendices include a bibliography, as well as abstracts, on radio measurements of eclipses, together with details of data reduction techniques used in eclipse observations. (Author)
