Abstract : Direct observations of the impulsive ejection of a highly anisotropic, low-energy solar electron packet which was accompanied by a Type 3 solar radio noise burst detected simultaneously with instrumentation on the satellite IMP-6 have been examined here. These events were associated with a solar flare commencing at 0935 UT, 6 April 1971, on the western limb of the sun.
