    Abstract

    During 1990, the Parkes radio telescope made a new, deep survey of the southern sky at 4850 MHz (the PMN Survey: see e.g. Griffith and Wright, 1993; Wright et al., 1994). The declination coverage of the survey was from δ = −87° to +10°. The flux limit of the survey was around 30 mJy, although dependent on declination. This survey increased the number of known, southern radio sources by a factor of about 6 to over 65,000.
