Abstract

The Revised Shapley-Ames Catalog (Sandage & Tamman, 1981) contains 335 spiral galaxies brighter than BT = 12. A subsample of these galaxies with δ ≥ -25° and total flux densities at 1.49 GHz (Condon, 1987) above 10 mJy were observed at λ2.8 cm using the 100-m radio telescope of the MPIfR Bonn. Depending on the expected flux density and extent of the source two observational methods were used: cross-scanning and mapping. In total, radio flux densities of 192 galaxies have been derived (Niklas et al., 1995). Additionally, a literature search was made in order to get flux densities at other frequencies.
