It is shown that the waveguide probe determinations of electron temperature of shock-heated plasma reported in the literature contain two errors. The major one is due to the use of an incorrect reference level for the plasma radiation temperature; the other is due to the use of an incorrect equation for relating the raw data to the electron plasma temperature. The effects of these errors are examined.
