We report here new Ca II H and K emission line fluxes and equivalent widths for seven RSCVn binary systems, observed at several orbital phases. All the stars show enhanced chromospheric activity. With information from available spectra, an in­ dividual study for each star has been done. Double emission has been found for some systems in which perhaps the hotter compo­nent could be the more active. We have tested spectroscopically the model of localized active regions for the prototype RSCVn.
