The continuum radio spectra of planetary nebulae are discussed, and the structure of these objects is examined from the observed aperture synthesis brightness distributions determined with the Very Large Array. The use of radio observations in determining distances to planetary nebulae is examined. The detection of atomic neutral hydrogen at λ21 cm associated with planetary nebulae, as well as the associated CO and OH components are discussed. An upper limit, of the nebular magnetic field associated with the neutral material, of 1 mG is reported for NGC 6302.
