1994ApJS...90..179G THE PARKES-MIT-NRAO (PMN) SURVEYS. III. SOURCE CATALOG FOR THE TROPICAL SURVEY (-29^deg^ < {delta} < -9.5^deg^) MARK R.GRIFFITH Department of Physics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology ALAN E. WRIGHT Australia Telescope National Facility, CSIRO, Parkes, NSW, Australia B. F. BURKE Department of Physics 26-355, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139 AND R. D. EKERS Australia Telescope National Facility, Epping, NSW, Australia Received 1993 April 12; accepted 1993 July 1 ABSTRACT We present a catalog of radio sources discovered at a frequency of 4850 MHz in the tropical zone (-29^deg^ < {delta} < -9.5^deg^) of Parkes-MIT- NRAO (PMN) Surveys. The tropical survey covers 2.01 sr and contains 13,363 sources to a flux limit that is, typically, about 42 mJy but varies as a function of declination. The survey was made using the Parkes 64m radio telescope with the NRAO multibeam receiver during 1990. This survey increases the number of known sources in the region surveyed by approximately a factor of 5. The data-taking and principal reduction methods used for the PMN surveys have been extensively described in a previous paper (Griffith & Wright 1993). In this paper we describe the specific details of the tropical survey, and we list the sources for the tropical survey. Later papers in the series will list objects for other survey zones, describe images made from the data, and provide analysis of the data. Subject headings: catalogs - radio continuum:general - surveys
