2007AJ....133.1236K The Fifth VLBA Calibrator Survey: VCS5 Y. Y. Kovalev, L. Petrov, E. B. Fomalont, and D. Gordon Abstract. This paper presents the fifth part of the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) Calibrator Survey (VCS), containing 569 sources not observed previously with very long baseline interferometry in geodetic or absolute astrometry programs. This campaign has two goals: (1) to observe additional sources that, together with previous survey results, form a complete sample, and (2) to find new strong sources suitable as phase calibrators. This VCS extension was based on three 24 hr VLBA observing sessions in 2005. It detected almost all extragalactic flat-spectrum sources with correlated flux density greater than 200 mJy at 8.6 GHz above declination -30 deg that were not observed previously. Source positions with milliarcsecond accuracy were derived from astrometric analysis of ionosphere-free combinations of group delays determined from the 2.3 and 8.6 GHz frequency bands. The VCS5 catalog of source positions, plots of correlated flux density versus projected baseline length, contour plots, and FITS files of naturally weighted CLEAN images, as well as calibrated visibility function files, are available on the World Wide Web. Key words: Astrometry, Catalogs, Surveys
