Parkes-MIT-NRAO Surveys

(1990 southern-hemisphere radio surveys)

The Parkes-MIT-NRAO Surveys (PMN) are Radio Astronomical Surveys of the southern hemisphere conducted in 1990 by the Parkes Observatory, using the NRAO Seven-Beam Receiver loaned by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) from its usual place on the no-longer-in-existence Green Bank 300ft Telescope (GB300). It is the southern hemisphere analog of the Green Bank 6-cm Radio Source Catalog (GB6). Many Radio Galaxies (RG) were discovered and still are known by their "PMN" designation.
