Spectra of weak radio sources from the RATAN-600 "Kholod" deep survey Bursov N.N <Astron. Zh., 74, 42 (1997)> =1997AZh....74...42B (SIMBAD/NED BibCode) =1997ARep...41...35B
ADC_Keywords: Radio sources ; Spectroscopy Abstract: A multifrequency deep survey of a band of sky with the declination of the source SS 433 (δ∼5°±20') was performed as part of the "Kholod" program on the RATAN-600 in 1987-1988. The right ascension intervals covered by the survey are 0h<α<14h and 18h<α<24h. The spectral properties of 400 sources from the RC catalog were determined for the first time by using only RATAN-600 data. The maximum in the flux density distribution for these sources at the central wavelength, λ7.6cm, occurs at ∼30mJy. The lower flux limits for the sample at wavelengths of 3.9, 7.6, 13.0, and 31.0cm are 16, 9, 37, and 61mJy, respectively. These observations provide the first flux estimates at 13.0 and 31.0cm for 90% of the sources. Spectra were measured for the first time for 112 sources (28%) and were revised for 90 sources (23%). The maximum in the spectral index distribution for the entire sample in the interval from λλ7.6-31.0cm occurs at α=-0.86±0.04 (Svα). The spectra of some 20 of the sample sources (5%) are peaked at roughly 1GHz, and about 40 spectra (10%) have low-frequency breaks. Roughly 70 sources (19%) have flat spectra (α>-0.5), and 64 (18%) have very steep spectra (α←1.1). File Summary:

Note (1): n: sources with the spectra obtained for the first time c: sources with revised or corrected spectra For the rest of the sources, spectra was added Note (2): Types from the classification of Kellerman (1974, in, Galactic and Extragalactic Radio Astronomy, ed: G.L. Verschuur and K.I. Kellerman, Springer-Verlag, berlin, Heildelberg, New-York, 320.). S: linear power-law spectra associated with extended optically thin radio sources. C-: The spectrum has a negative second derivative of the dependence logS-logν and is more steep at the short wavelengths. Such spectra are also assigned to extended radio sources Cmax: The power spectrum (class S) or dual power spectrum (class C-) at short waves, but there is a sharp cut off at the long wavelengths. Such spectra are produced by compact optically thick sources. C+: The spectrum has positive curvature with a rise at the long or the short wavelengths. CPX: Complex spectra with one or more minima. The spectra are generally believed to be composed of two or more spectra of class Cmax plus, in some case, of class S. The spectra of this class are also assigned to compact optically thick objects. F: Flat spectra
