J/A+A/415/549       High-frequency polarization of Kuehr sources (Ricci+, 2004)

High-frequency polarization properties of southern Kuehr sources. Ricci R., Prandoni I., Gruppioni C., Sault R.J., De Zotti G. <Astron. Astrophys., 415, 549-558 (2004)> =2004A&A...415..549R

(1981, Cat. VIII/5) using the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) at 18.5GHz. This paper focuses on the polarization properties of this sample, while other properties will be addressed in a future paper. Description: The observations were performed in three runs during March 2002. The total observing time was 48 hours: 24 hours on March 20-21, 10 hours on March 21-22 and 14 hours on March 27-28. 53 sources have been rejected after data reduction. File Summary:
