Abstract:

Direct resolution of Cygnus A at a frequency of 3292 Mcs using the 52 inch fan beam of a compound interferometer is reported. On the basis of a firm determination of the actual peak-to-peak distance the existing data were examined and it was found that the reported dependence of separation on frequency is simply an appearance produced by the existence of a third-component whose spectrum differs from that of the main components.
