New observations of hydrogen recombination lines in the compact HII region K3-50a are presented. They cover a broad wavelength range from the near-IR (Bralpha and others, observed with ISO), through sub-mm and mm transitions (H26alpha - H30alpha from JCMT and H40alpha - H68alpha from Nobeyama) to radio wavelengths. The line fluxes are compared with a simple model.

Appears in the proceedings of "Star Formation with ISO", Lisbon, 1997.
