Abstract : An earlier study of the solar flare U-shaped radio burst spectra and associated proton flux data has been extended to include additional events. The slope of the proton peak-flux profile is correlated to the radio frequency ratio (omega sub 3)/(omega sub 2) where (omega sub 3) equals frequency of maximum radio peak flux of the upper branch of the U, and (omega sub 2) equals cut-off frequency for the lower branch of the U. The use of the slope allows inclusion of the pre-Explorer (1966-67) events, recorded on various different proton-energy channels.
