Abstract : The purpose of the project was to measure the absolute flux densities of the emission of four discrete sources in frequency bands between 12 and 40 mHz: Cassiopeia A, Cygnus A, Taurus A, and Virgo A. In these experiments, which were performed in June to November 1961 and March to June 1962, two radio telescopes were used that had been developed at the radio astronomy laboratory of the Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics, Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR. One of these instruments operated in the 12-20 mHz band, and the other, in the 20-40-mHz band. (Author)
