An RT-2 radio telescope of the Ussuriysk Astrophysical Observatory (UAO) is intended for measuring the total flux of solar radio emission at a frequency of 2.804 GHz. Regular observations have been carried out in the UAO since 1990. The current state of the instrument and the data survey for the observation years are presented. The emphasis is on the transition to digital registration of the radio flux in 2002, which offers new opportunities of the data analysis. Digital recording allows us to improve the accuracy of the daily radio-flux measurements, ensures their comparison with the data of the integral radio emission at other frequencies, and provides for reconstruction of the time profiles of powerful radio bursts. Possible problems which can be solved using the UAO radiometer data are outlined.
