2015AJ....150...81W CHANG-ES. IV. Radio Continuum Emission of 35 Edge-on Galaxies Observed with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array in D Configuration---Data Release 1 Wiegert, Theresa; Irwin, Judith; Miskolczi, Arpad; Schmidt, Philip; Mora, Silvia Carolina; Damas-Segovia, Ancor; Stein, Yelena; English, Jayanne; Rand, Richard J.; Santistevan, Isaiah; Walterbos, Rene; Krause, Marita; Beck, Rainer; Dettmar, Ralf-Jurgen; Kepley, Amanda; Wezgowiec, Marek; Wang, Q.

We present the first part of the observations made for the Continuum Halos in Nearby Galaxies, an EVLA Survey (CHANG-ES) project. The aim of the CHANG-ES project is to study and characterize the nature of radio halos, their prevalence as well as their magnetic fields, and the cosmic rays illuminating these fields. This paper reports observations with the compact D configuration of the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) for the sample of 35 nearby edge-on galaxies of CHANG-ES. With the new wide bandwidth capabilities of the VLA, an unprecedented sensitivity was achieved for all polarization products. The beam resolution is an average of 9."6 and 36" with noise levels reaching approximately 6 and 30 muJy beam^-1^ for C- and L-bands, respectively (robust weighting). We present intensity maps in these two frequency bands (C and L), with different weightings, as well as spectral index maps, polarization maps, and new measurements of star formation rates (SFRs). The data products described herein are available to the public in the CHANG-ES data release available at http://www.queensu.ca/changes. We also present evidence of a trend among galaxies with larger halos having higher SFR surface density, and we show, for the first time, a radio continuum image of the median galaxy, taking advantage of the collective signal-to-noise ratio of 30 of our galaxies. This image shows clearly that a "typical" spiral galaxy is surrounded by a halo of magnetic fields and cosmic rays. Key words: galaxies: magnetic fields, galaxies: star formation, ISM: magnetic fields, radio continuum: galaxies
