Observed sources were selected from known 18-cm OH sources. This survey was conducted with the 100-m Effelsberg telescope, at 6.0GHz in Sep 2000, to achieve high signal to noise ratio observations and a sensitivity limit of about 0.05 to 0.1Jy. A total of 65 stellar sources were searched for both main line and satellite line emission. We confirm the previous detection of 5 cm OH in Vy 2-2, do not confirm emission from NML-Cyg and do not report any other new detection within the above sensitivity limit. The number of observed sources is 67. File Summary:
