A VLA survey of dMe flare stars
A survey is underway, which uses the VLA at wavelengths of 6 and 20 cm, to search for radio emission from all dMe flare star. within about 10 parsecs of the Sun, and which have not yet been widely observed at radio wavelengths. At 20 cm, two bands centered at 1415 and 1515 MHz are observed and at 6 cm, two bands centered at 4535 and 4985 MHz are observed. Results so far, based on a total observing time of about one hour each during July 1986 have yielded detections from 9 of the 27 stellar systems in the program.
