All sources were observed with the Tidbinbilla 70m radio telescope, and 21 detections were made; 86GHz SiO Mopra observations of a subset of the sample are also presented. Description: For the OH observations, a complete sample of 88 sources was selected from the ATCA/VLA survey as likely post-AGB sources on the basis of their IRAS and MSX far-infrared colors. The 22GHz observations for all 85 sources were taken as service observations with the Tidbinbilla 70m radio telescope between 2003 April and 2004 May. File Summary:

Note (1): Names identified in Simbad as: dNNN = SCHD NNN bNNN = SCHB NNN vNNN = [SVM2001b] NNN Note (2): MSX class codes is as follows: Q I = MSX quadrant I (older post-AGB stars) Q IV = MSX quadrant IV (young post-AGB stars) Note (3): IRAS class code is as follows: LI = IRAS LI region (more massive post-AGB stars) RI = IRAS RI region (less massive post-AGB stars)
