ADC_Keywords: Radio sources Keywords: cosmic microwave background - cosmology: observations Abstract: We have observed the cosmic microwave background (CMB) temperature fluctuations in eight fields covering three separated areas of sky with the Very Small Array at 34GHz. A total area of 101 square degrees has been imaged, with sensitivity on angular scales of 3.6°-0.4° (equivalent to angular multipoles l=150-900). File Summary:

Note (1): In Simbad, sources are designated as [TCC2003b] JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS Note (2): The apparent flux is the flux of each source at 34GHz as observed by the VSA (i.e. including the effect of the VSA primary beam). this flux represents the actual flux subtracted from each map.
