We determined the efficiencies of the aperture, beam and forward spillover and scattering of 13.7m radio telescope at Daeduk Radio Astronomy Observatory through the observations of the planets and Moon. The main panels adjustments were carried out on September 1991 and the improvements in the efficiencies were checked by comparing the observations made before and after the panel adjustments. The efficiencies were turned out to be 0.35, 0.47 and 0.83 at 115.27 GHz for the aperture, beam and forward scattering and spillover, respectively. These marked nearly a factor of two upgrade of the efficiencies previously measured.
