2001A&A...377..801H HI observations of nearby galaxies IV. More dwarf galaxies in the southern sky W. K. Huchtmeier, I. D. Karachentsev and V. E. Karachentseva Max-Plank-Institut fur Radioastronomie, Auf dem Hugel 69, 53121 Bonn, Germany Special Astrophysical Observatory, Russian Academy of Sciences, N.

In this paper we present H I observations of nearby galaxies from two more lists of the Karachentsev catalog of candidates for nearby dwarf galaxies in the southern sky. Observations north of declination -31^deg^ were performed with the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg. Data for more southern galaxies were taken from HIPASS (www.atnf.csiro.au/research/multibeam). This sample is a supplement to the list of 94 southern dwarf galaxy candidates (1998, A& AS, 127, 409) located in the same declination range around the known Local Volume galaxies (i.e. galaxies within 10 Mpc, LV hereafter). We observed 17 galaxies not observed in the previous sample; and all 67 candidate dwarf galaxies from the SERC EJ sky survey (Karachentsev et al. 2000) and 81 objects from a supplementary list of candidate dwarf galaxies (Karachentseva & Karachentsev 2000). This yields a total of 165 (= 17 + 67 + 81) galaxies. Overall we have a detection rate of 48%. The sample of detected galaxies has the following median parameters: radial velocity V_LG_ = 1127 km s^-1^, H I line width W_50_ = 59 km s^-1^, absolute blue magnitude M_BT_^0^ = -14.4 mag, linear diameter A_0_ = 4.0 kpc, hydrogen mass-to-luminosity ratio 1.6 M_sun_/L_sun_. The sample of known galaxies within the Local Volume increased from 179 in 1979 (Kraan-Korteweg & Tammann 1979) to 387 now. This corresponds to an increase in total luminosity of 22%. The known H I mass in the LV increased by 25%; the relative H I content M_HI_/L_B_ increased from 0.21 to 0.26 for the whole volume. However we still might have missed half of the dwarf galaxies in the Local Volume. Key words: galaxies: distances and redshifts - radio lines: galaxies
