Abstract : New radio observations of the 'gamma-Cygni' source in the Cygnus X complex have been made at wavelengths of 9.3 cm and 2.8 cm using a 10-m and 46-m antenna respectively. These support earlier conclusions that this strong radio source is of a non-thermal nature. In addition, there is evidence that it is weakly (<2 percent) but significantly polarized at both wavelengths. (Author)
