Evidence for radio emission from the giant binary lambda Andromedae and a search for emission from other stars.
We have conducted a survey of 135 peculiar and variable stars in a search for continuum radio emission at 6 cm using the 140-foot and 300-foot telescopes at Green Bank. One positive new detection is reported and flux densities for Algol during the period 7-10 March are given. Two further sources near the blue variable V426 Oph and the symbiotic carbon star UV Aur are discussed. The new source, X And, is a giant binary related to the RS CVn binaries. It provides additional support for the identification of this class of binaries as being strongly prone to radio emission. Key words: radio emission from stars - RS CVn-type binaries
