The 6C survey of radio sources - IV. The zone 67<Dec<82, 0h<RA<24h Hales S.E.G., Mayer C.J., Warner P.J., Baldwin J.E. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc. 251, 46 (1991)> =1991MNRAS.251...46H
ADC_Keywords: Radio sources ; Surveys Abstract: The 6th Cambridge Survey of radio sources covers most of the sky north of 30° with an angular resolution of 4.2x4.2cosecδ arcmin2 and a limiting flux density of 160mJy at 151MHz, with completeness achieved at 600mJy. This zone covers the declinations 67°--82° region 48°<δ<68°, 05h25m<α<18h17m. Description: See the documentation by N. A. Oliversen, either in LaTeX (doc.tex), or in plain ascii (adc.doc) File Summary:
