In this chapter the radio properties of the Galactic
Center black hole (Sgr A*) are reviewed: variability, size and
position from VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry), spectrum, and
polarization. Radio and X-ray emission are discussed within the
framework of black hole plasma jet models and simple equations for the
emission are derived. It is also shown that the radio emission can be
used to actually image the event horizon of the black hole in the near
