1989A&A...216...39H Polarized radio emission from NGC 4945 J. I. Harnett, R. F. Haynes, U. Klein, and R. Wielebinski Max-Planck-Institut fur Radioastronomie, Auf dem Hugel 69, D-5300 Bonn 1, Federal Republic of Germany Division of Radiophysics, CSIRO, P.O. Box 76, Epping, NSW 2121, Australia Radioastronomisches Institut der Universitat Bonn, Auf dem Hugel 71, D-5300 Bonn 1, Federal Republic of Germany Received August 30, accepted November 2, 1988 Summary. Observations at 4.75 GHz of the large southern edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 4945 with the Parkes 64-m telescope are reported. The galaxy exhibits an unusual distribution of linearly polarized radio emission: two maxima of polarized emission are located at ~2.4 kpc z-distance (on either side of the plane of the galaxy), with the line joining them passing the active centre at an angle of ~40^deg^ with respect to the z-axis. These maxima are reminiscent of the peculiar features seen in the spiral galaxy NGC 4258 (with medium angular resolution) which is famous for its anomalous radio arms. Key words:galaxies: NGC 4945 - radio continuum - polarization - active nuclei - interstellar magnetic fields
