Abstract : An interferometric riometer system with a swept frequency range of 19 to 41 MHz operates at the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories' Sagamore Hill Observatory. Matching of the system to its functional principle required basic modifications in the operating period from October 1961 to September 1966. Several published papers resulted from a study of the events recorded during observation of the planet Jupiter. Abstracts of the papers appear here with a catalog of supporting data. Other observations include: special events from the Sun and Cassiopeia, as well as a solar eclipse. New techniques, resulting from experience gained by operation of this equipment, led to a proposal for an improved system. (Author)
