We present a summary of several studies of transient coronal phenomena based upon high spatial resolution radio imaging data along with Yohkoh SXT and HXT observations. In addition to normal flares the studies also involve such exotic events as active region transient brightenings (ARTB) and coronal jets and bright points. We provide evidence of nonthermal processes in flaring X-ray bright points from spatially resolved meter-wave data, existence and propagation of type III burst emitting electrons in coronal jets, radio signatures of ARTB's, and beaming of electrons producing microwave and hard X-rays. The implications of these observations are discussed.
