These galaxies define a sample for use in the determinations of peculiar velocities using the near-infrared Tully-Fisher (TF) relation. The sample is based on the 394 HI-selected galaxies from the Parkes HI Zone of Avoidance survey (HIZOA). Follow-up narrow-band Parkes HI observations were obtained in 2010 and 2015 for 290 galaxies, while for the further 104 galaxies, sufficiently high signal-to-noise (S/N) spectra were available from the original HIZOA data. All 394 spectra are reduced and parametrized in the same systematic way. Five different types of linewidth measurements were derived, and a Bayesian mixture model was used to derive conversion equations between these five widths. Of the selected and measure galaxies, 342 have adequate signal to noise (S/N≥5) for use in TF distance estimation. The average value of the S/N ratio of the sample is 14.7. We present the HI parameters for these galaxies. The sample will allow a more accurate determination of the flow field in the southern ZOA which bisects dynamically important large-scale structures such as Puppis, the Great Attractor, and the Local Void. Description: Data were collected in 2010 and 2015 using the 21cm MB receiver on the 64-m Parkes Radio Telescope in narrow-band mode, using only the high-efficiency seven inner beams. Beam-switching mode allows one beam ON the source and the other six OFF source, which reduces the noise by a factor of 2. Each target was observed for at least 35 min of ON-source integration time, with the 8MHz bandwidth split into 1024 channels. This results in a velocity resolution of 1.6km/s. File Summary:
