We report evidence for ~1" extended structure in 6 cm continuum emission emanating from the symbiotic star system RX Puppis. We did not detect hourly continuum flux changes as suggested in previous radio experiments by others. Our observations indicate that the predominant nature of the radio emission is thermal and consistent with an optically thick stellar wind emanating from the symbiotic star system. Our results are discussed with regard to other similar stellar binary systems.
