Solar type II radio bursts represent the radio signature of shock waves travelling through the solar corona. They are associated with flares, coronal mass ejections (CME's) and interplanetary shocks. Type II radio bursts appear as emission stripes slowly drifting from high to low frequencies in dynamic radio spectra. The spectral features of all solar type II radio bursts observed by the new radiospectrograph of the Astrophysikalisches Institut Potsdam in Tremsdorf during the time period from September 1, 1990 to December 31, 1993, i.e., during the first part of the ULYSSES spacecraft mission, are summarized and statistically investigated.
