We present observational results from studying the quasi-periodicities in global solar radio flux during periods of enhanced noise storm activity,over durations of ~ 4 hrs a day ( "intra-day"variations ), observed at 77.5 MHz with the newly commissioned log-periodic array tracking system at the Gauribidanur radio observatory. Positional information on the storm centers were obtained with the radio imaging data from the Nancay (sic.) Radioheliograph ( NRH ), while their active region ( AR ) counterparts on the photosphere( and the overlying chromosphere ) were located from the H_alpha images of the Big Bear Solar Observatory ( BBSO ). The quasi-periodicity in flux was found to be 110 minutes, with the fluctuation in flux being 3 (+/- 1.5) solar flux units ( sfu ). The results of such pulsations are interpreted qualitatively as evidence for coronal seismology.
