The frequency of the center of gravity of the transition in Ag I has been determined using laser heterodyne spectroscopy of a collimated thermal metastable atomic beam. We find the value (12) MHz, five times more accurate than our earlier published result. For the isotope shift, we obtain ν(109Ag) ν(107Ag)=-978.1(0.5) MHz, a ten-fold improvement over our previous measurement.
