Abstract : The complete polarization characteristics of a number of pulsating radio sources have been determined at 13 cm. Both a stable average and a time varying component of the polarized radiation were found. A change in the position angle of the linear component during the course of the pulse is a common property; however the high degree of linear polarization and constant rotation of angle seen for PSR0833-45 is atypical.
