The water maser emmision of R Draconis was observed at 22 GHz at the Haystack Observatory approximately once each month from November 1988 to July 1990.  There is a correlation between the variations of the maser emission and the AAVSO light curve; the peak of the maser activity follows the light activity by about 0.2 period.
