During March-June, 1964, measurements of the flux density of the sources Cassiopeia A, Taurus A, Cygnus A, and the Orion Nebula were made at the Algonquin Radio Observatory. The procedure involved a null balancing technique to minimize possible gain variations transits with fixed antenna position to eliminate background contributions and comparison of the recorded source intensities with the emission from heated resistive terminations to establish absolute temperature measurements.
