Radio and optical observations of a complete sample of E and SO galaxies. III. A radio continuum survey at 2.7 and 5.0 GHz.
This paper presents results from a continuum radio survey of a complete sample of 248 southern E and S0 galaxies. All the galaxies were observed at 2.7 GHz (11 cm) with the Parkes radio telescope, and those detected above a level of 25-30 mJy, and a consideration of the background source density at 2.7 GHz indicates that no more than two or three of these detections are due to background soruces.
