Canuto, V.M., and J.R. Owen, 1979: Scale covariance and G-varying cosmology. IV. The log N-log S relation. Astrophys. J. Supp. Ser., 41, 301-326, doi:10.1086/190620.

The traditional radio counts N(S) and radio source models are studied within the framework of the scale-covariant cosmology developed to investigate whether the relative strength of the gravitational and electromagnetic constants is a function of cosmological epoch. It is found that a gravitational constant G varying as 1/t, where t is the epoch in atomic units, is consistent with all the data analyzed. For a wide class of models the present cosmology allows a finer discrimination of the deceleration parameter than does standard theory. The results, when combined with those of previous papers, namely, those from radio and optical flux and angular-diameter data analysis, favor an open universe.
