Abstract: During the 1974 fly-by of Jupiter by the Pioneer 11 spacecraft, radio observations were carried out daily at 327 and 1410 MHz for a period of 60 days centered on December 3, 1974, the day of closest approach to Jupiter. The 1410-MHz data reveal two significant short-term variations in the Jovian radio emission; the largest one is probably present also at 327 MHz although Faraday rotation in earth's ionosphere could have affected the data. The two radio bursts appear to be correlated with two long-duration electron bursts observed in the energy ranges from 2 to 7 and 6 to 30 MeV.
