J/A+A/452/739       ULX sources and FIRST radio sources   (Sanchez-Sutil+, 2006)

A catalogue of ultra-luminous X-ray source coincidences with FIRST radio sources Sanchez-Sutil J.R., Munoz-Arjonilla A.J., Marti J., Garrido J.L., Perez-Ramirez D., Luque-Escamilla P. <Astron. Astrophys., 452, 739-742 (2006)> =2006A&A...452..739S

Our work is based on a systematic cross-identification of the most recent and extensive available ULX catalogues and archival radio data. A catalogue of 70 positional coincidences is reported. Most of them are located within the galaxy nucleus. Among them, we find 11 new cases of non-nuclear ULX sources with possibly associated radio emission. File Summary:

Note (1): ULX catalogues used as follows: LB = Liu & Bergman, 2005, Cat. J/ApJS/157/59 LM = Liu & Mirabel, 2005, Cat. J/A+A/429/1125 CP = Colbert & Ptak, 2002, Cat. J/ApJS/143/25 Note (2): Comments as follows: N = nuclear QSO = quasar HII = HII region SNR = supernova remnant E = non nuclear but extended HNR = hypernova remnant SSS = supersoft source FRII = Fanaroff-Riley type II N(2) = nuclear. Multiple coincidences with a single FIRST source N(3) = nuclear. Very close to nucleus, but not exactly coincident
