ADC_Keywords: Pulsars ; Radio sources Keywords: methods: observational - pulsars: general - pulsar: individual: PSR J1734-3333, PSR J1830-1135 Abstract: The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey is a sensitive survey of a strip of the Galactic plane with |b|<5° and 260°<l<50° at 1374MHz. Here we report the discovery of 120 new pulsars and subsequent timing observations, primarily using the 76-m Lovell radio telescope at Jodrell Bank. The main features of the sample of 370 published pulsars discovered during the multibeam survey are described. Furthermore, we highlight two pulsars: PSR J1734-3333, a young pulsar with the second highest surface magnetic field strength among the known radio pulsars, BS=5.4x1013G, and PSR J1830-1135, he second slowest radio pulsar known, with a 6-s period.

Note (1): PSRs J1841-0348, J1842-0415 and J1844-0310 were discovered independently by Lorimer et al. (2000A&A...358..169L). Note (2): Note on PPSRJ as follows: A = pulsars that have been timed at Arecibo P = pulsars timed using the Parkes telescope All other pulsars were timed using the Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank.
