The mass of a coronal mass ejection (CME) is estimated using meter-decametric observations obtained with the Clark Lake multifrequency radioheliograph. Mass estimates in the past were made using coronagraph and white-light photometer observations. Since the radiation at radio and optical wavelength regimes has different physical origins, the radio method can provide an independent check on the mass estimates. The estimate of the 1986 February 16 CME using the radio method is close to the average value of CME masses reported in the literature.
