Spectral observations of the core of Orion A at wavelengths around 1.3 mm show a high density of strong, broad emission lines. The combined flux in lines with peak antenna temperatures stronger than 0.2 K accounts for approximately 40 percent of the broad-band millimeter-wave flux from the region. Thus the broad-band flux from Orion A is in large part due to sources other than dust emission.
