Results of Mossbauer measurements on dilute Fe based alloys with all soluble transition impurities are given; the spectra are analysed to obtain hyperfine field and isomer shift changes at first, second and average further neighbour shells. The hyperfine field changes are shown to be consistent with a model in which the conduction electron polarization has a linear response to the d moment changes induced by the impurity. The isomer shift changes are ascribed primarily to variations in the d spin up density at the Fe neighbour sites.
