As a result we present a list of 101 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates mainly of low surface brightness which have angular diameters a>0.5'. About two thirds of the objects are new discoveries. This sample is considered as a supplement to the 163 northern dwarf galaxy candidates (1998, Cat., J/A+AS/127/409) which have been detected in the same declination range around the known Local Volume galaxies and to the 78 dwarf galaxy candidates (1999A&AS..135..221K) in the Local Void region. All the galaxies were observed in HI with the 100-m Effelsberg radio telescope with a detection rate of 46%. The sample of detected galaxies has the following median parameters: radial velocity VLG=+770km/s, HI line width W50=46km/s, absolute blue magnitude MB=-13.8mag, linear diameter A0=2.7kpc, hydrogen mass-to-luminosity ratio MHI/LB=1.2M/L, and the HI mass-to-total mass ratio MHI/Mt=0.28.

Note (1): Radial velocity with respect to the Local Group centroid with the solar apex parameters: VA=316km/s, lA=93°, bA=-4°, Karachentsev and Makarov (1996AJ....111..794K), Schlegel et al. (1998ApJ...500..525S) assuming a kinematic distance D=VLG/H with a Hubble constant of 75 km/s/Mpc. Note (2): Integral absolute magnitude corrected for galactic extinction AB (Schlegel et al. 1998ApJ...500..525S) assuming a kinematic distance D=VLG/H with a Hubble constant of 75km/s/Mpc Note (3): (MHI/Msun)=2.35*105*D2*SHI Note (4): Where the indicative total mass M=0.83*104*a*W502*D is expressed via the measured angular diameter in arcmin and the HI line width W50 at 50% of the peak intensity, in km/s; here we did not introduce a correction for the galaxy inclination because of its uncertainty for irregular galaxies, and the calculated value is a minimum for the total galaxy mass inside the isophote of ∼27mag/arcsec2
