AbstractStudies of extraterrestrial radio noise became world wide after WWII, and were rapidly separated into a number of disciplines. Solar radio astronomy, at a wavelength of 10.7 cm, was initiated in 1946 at the Radio Field Station of the National Research Council. Its development at the Goth Hill Radio Observatory outside Ottawa is outlined until 1962, when the work was transferred to the Algonquin Radio Observatory. Résumé Après la Seconde guerre mondiale, les études sur les ondes radio extraterrestres se répandirent à l'échelle mondiale et se fractionnèrent rapidement en disciplines distinctes. La radio astronomie solaire sur des ondes de 10,7 cm débuta en 1946 à la station d'écoute radio du Conseil national de recherches du Canada. Cet article retrace les recherches dans ce domaine au cours des quinzek années suivantes effectuées à l'Observatoire de radio-astronomie de Goth-Hill, près d'Ottawa. Après 1962, ces travaux relèvent de l'Observatoire radio-astronomique Algonquin.
