We want to determine the average properties of such z∼2 Spitzer-selected SMGs by combining millimeter, radio, and infrared photometry for a representative IR-flux (lambdarest∼8um) limited sample of SMG candidates. A complete sample of 33 sources believed to be starbursts (5.8um-peakers) was selected in the (0.5deg2) J1046+56 field with selection criteria F_24um>400uJy, the presence of a redshifted stellar emission peak at 5.8um, and r'Vega>23. The field, part of the SWIRE Lockman Hole field, benefits from very deep VLA/GMRT 20cm, 50cm, and 90cm radio data (all 33 sources are detected at 50cm), and deep 160um and 70um Spitzer data. The 33 sources, with photometric redshifts ∼1.5-2.5, were observed at 1.2mm with IRAM-30m/MAMBO to an rms ∼0.7-0.8mJy in most cases. Their millimeter, radio, 7-band Spitzer, and near-IR properties were jointly analyzed. Description: Observations were made during the winter 2006/2007 MAMBO observing pool between December 2006 and March 2007 at the IRAM 30m telescope, located at Pico Veleta, Spain, using the 117-element version of the MAMBO array operating at 1.2mm (250GHz).

Note on table1.dat: The optical magnitude limits correspond to 90% completeness values derived in the field where our sample was selected, but note that the coverage of the optical observations is not uniform across the field. The optical data come from NOAO and the Near-IR magnitudes from UKIRT (see text).

Note (1): The value of L1.4GHz, the rest-frame luminosity at 1.4GHz, is the weighted average of the two determinations of L1.4GHz from 20cm and 50cm flux densities when both are available. Note (2): d: for sources with high 20cm/1.2mm flux densities ratios, the values of LFIR,radio, the infrared SFR derived from the radio flux densities and the stellar mass are dubious. Note (3): SFR calculated by Kennicutt's formula (Eq. (6)) with a Salpeter IMF (see text). The upper limits of LFIR and SFR are 3σ limits, except for the sources with 1.5<S/N<3 where they are the observed value plus 2σ. The upper limits of LFIR,radio and SFRradio are 3σ limits. Note (4): Abbreviations used: SMG = submillimeter galaxies SFRG = submillimetre faint radio galaxies
