The survey was conducted at four wavelengths, 20, 11, 6, and 3cm, over a 4 year period and achieves an rms sensitivity of about 10µJy at each wavelength. We describe the observations and data reduction processes and present data on radio sources close to the center of the Hubble Deep Field-South. We discuss in detail the properties of a subset of these sources. The sources include both starburst galaxies and galaxies powered by an active galactic nucleus and range in redshift from 0.1 to 2.2. Some of them are characterized by unusually high radio-to-optical luminosities, presumably caused by dust extinction. Description: We imaged the HDF-S using ATCA at four wavelengths, 20, 11, 6, and 3cm, obtaining resolutions of 6", 4", 2", and 1", respectively. Observations were taken over a period of 4 years from mid-1998 to late 2001 in a variety of configurations to maximize u-v coverage (i.e., the sampling of the Fourier plane). File Summary:

Note (1): Note that these uncertainties refer to the formal positional uncertainties derived from the fitting process. To these should be added, in quadrature, a systematic uncertainty of about 0.2", representing the uncertainty in the position of the AT phase calibrator sources. Note (2): The published tables indicates units of µJy, most likely a typo. Where the column is blank, then the source is either undetected at that wavelength, i.e. below 5σlocal,ν, or lies outside the catalogued area. The peak flux is given for unresolved sources and the integrated flux is given for resolved sources. Note (3): Measured east of north. Note (4): Wavelength at which the source position and Gaussian fit parameters were measured, with L = 20cm (1.5GHz); S = 11cm (2.7GHz); C = 6cm (5.0GHz); X = 3cm (10GHz). Note (5): The peak flux from this fit was then compared with a peak value derived from a parabolic fit to the source 1 = If these two peak values differed by less than 20% and the fitted position was inside the 0.9Speak flux density contour, then these fluxes and positions were assigned a quality flag of 1. 2 = If they failed this test but inspection showed that the derived position and peak flux density of the peak were consistent with the data, then they were assigned a quality flag of 2.

Note (1): Except where otherwise stated, measured values of V, R, and I are taken from the CTIO catalog (Palunas et al. 2000ApJ...541...61P). Note (2): Logarithm of the radio-to-optical luminosity ratio, calculated as 0.4(I-S20cm), where I is the I-band magnitude and S20cm is the radio magnitude derived from the 20cm flux density using the AB radio magnitude scale defined by Ivezic et al. (2002AJ....124.2364I). Note (3): Star formation rate implied by the radio luminosity if all radio emission is assumed to be generated by star formation activity, using the scaling given by Condon (1992ARA&A..30..575C) with a Salpeter initial mass function (Q=5.5). Note (4): Classification of the radio source. SB indicates starburst activity, Sy indicates a Seyfert galaxy, and GPS indicates a gigahertz-peaked- spectrum AGN. Note (5): Notes, defined as follows: a = J and K from EIS (ESO Infrared Survey; Nonino et al. 1999A&AS..137...51N). b = J and K from Franceschini et al. (2003A&A...403..501F). c = R and I limits are based on nondetection in WFPC FF observations. d = I, J, and K from Vanzella et al. (2001AJ....122.2190V). e = For the calculation of the radio-optical ratio, I has been estimated as I=J+0.12, where 0.12 is the mean value of I-J for those sources in this subset for which a measured value of I-J is available. f = For the calculation of the radio-optical ratio, I has been estimated as I=R-0.83, where 0.83 is the mean value of R-I for those sources in this subset for which a measured value of R-I is available.
