K-Auger transitions of neon produced by 33-MeV O5+ bombardment are clearly resolved above a broad peaked background. Besides the 5 normal transitions, we observe 58 satellite lines stemming from initial configurations having single K-shell, multiple L-shell vacancies. Transition energies and relative intensities are measured and compared with those obtained with 1.5-keV electron bombardment. Calculated energies for Auger satellite transitions are used to give possible identifications for observed lines.
