The pure rotational spectra of 107AgO and 109AgO were recorded in the 117-380 GHz spectral region using a dc-sputtering absorption cell. The 107Ag(I=1/2) and 109Ag(I=1/2) magnetic hyperfine parameters are interpreted in terms of plausible electronic configuration contributions to the X 2Πi state. It is shown that the determined unusual sign of the Λ-doubling and Fermi contact parameters implies that the X 2Πi state is dominated by a three open shell configuration. A comparison with isovalent CuO is made.
