The Parkes Catalog (PKS) is
an astronomical catalog from a radio
survey of the southern hemisphere
by the Parkes Observatory.
It was first published in 1969 based on a 408 MHz survey,

and other frequencies.
Numerous radio galaxies were discovered, some still commonly referred to
by their PKS designation.
