DIXRAD: MASTER LIST OF RADIO SOURCES
Table name: DIXRAD
Spectral Band: RADIO
Kind of Object: Radio Sources
- Dixon R.S.: 1970, A master list of radio sources, Astrophys. J. Suppl.
Ser. 20, 1.
This catalogue is the 19?? version of the original first
published in 1970. It combines many catalogues in common
format. Source positions and flux densities are in general
identical with the original ones; trailing have been included
only when warranted by the accuracy of measurement. When flux
densities were measured at several frequencies, ditto records
are used to indicate the additional flux densities. No attempt
has been made to coordinate multiple listings for the same
source, inasmuch as this would be based on arbitrary criteria
at best and would be ambiguous in cases where several sources
in one list correspond to only one in another list of lower
resolution. Where both integrated and peak flux densities were
given in a list, integrated values were used in the Master List.
