The Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope was used in 1983 and on four occasions in 1985 to map the 843-MHz continuum emission from a field including the flare star AT Mic. Quiescent emission, apparently from the star, was detected. The flux density varied from one observation to another, in the range 3 to 8 mJy at 843 MHz. These observations are thought to be the first reported of quiescent emission from a flare star at such a low frequency. The emission mechanism is not known.
