Abstract

Results from a survey of the northern Galactic plane (at declination ≳ 30°) at 151 MHz made with the Cambridge Low Frequency Synthesis Telescope are presented. This survey is designated the 7C(G) — i.e. the Galactic portion of the ongoing 7C surveys. This covers the regions 80° < l 104° and 126° < l < 180°, for |b| ≤ 5°.5, and has some coverage to |b| ≈ 9°, with a resolution of ≈70 × 70 cossec (δ) arcsec2 (RA × Dec.). The observations, data reduction and calibration of this survey are described, and a catalogue of 6262 compact sources, with a completeness limit of ≈0.25 Jy over most of the survey region, is presented. The catalogue has an rms positional accuracy of better than 10 arcsec, and the flux densities are tied to the scale of Roger, Bridle & Costain with an accuracy of better than 10 per cent.
