Abstract

It is shown that the collision of two black holes would result in the emission of electromagnetic radiation with a very distinctive wave form. If the gravitational radiation events reported by Weber are produced by black-hole collisions in the galactic center, then the associated electromagnetic pulses would have, in the microwave band, a maximum flux between 0.000004 and 0.00006 Jy. This flux lies at the limit of detectability with present-day radio astronomy technology.
