We present a comprehensive multifrequency catalogue of radio sources behind the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) between 0.2 and 20 GHz, gathered from a combination of new and legacy radio continuum surveys. This catalogue covers an area of ∼144 deg2 at angular resolutions from 45 arcsec to ∼3 arcmin. We find 6434 discrete radio sources in total, of which 3789 are detected at two or more radio frequencies. We estimate the median spectral index (α; where Sv ∼ να) of α = −0.89 and mean of −0.88 ± 0… Expand


An Australia Telescope Compact Array 20-cm radio continuum study of the Large Magellanic Cloud
We present a mosaic image of the 1.4-GHz radio continuum emission from the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) observed with the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) and the Parkes Telescope. The mosaicExpand
The 100 Strongest Radio Point Sources in the Field of the Large Magellanic Cloud at 1.4 GHz
We present the 100 strongest 1.4 GHz point sources from a new mosaic image in the direction of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The observations making up the mosaic were made using AustraliaExpand
An unbiased sample of bright southern compact steep spectrum and gigahertz peaked spectrum sources
Compact Steep Spectrum (CSS) and Gigahertz Peaked Spectrum (GPS) sources are classes of compact, powerful, extragalactic objects. These sources are thought to be the earliest stages in the evolutionExpand
The Australia Telescope 20 GHz Survey: the source catalogue
We present the full source catalogue from the Australia Telescope 20 GHz (AT20G) Survey. The AT20G is a blind radio survey carried out at 20 GHz with the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) fromExpand
SUMSS: a wide-field radio imaging survey of the southern sky – II. The source catalogue
This paper is the second in a series describing the Sydney University Molonglo Sky Survey (SUMSS) being carried out at 843 MHz with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST). The surveyExpand
Deep ATLAS radio observations of the CDFS-SWIRE field
We present the first results from the Australia Telescope Large Area Survey (ATLAS), which consist of deep radio observations of a 3.7 square degree field surrounding the Chandra Deep Field South,Expand
We report the spectroscopic confirmation of 29 new, 12 plausible, and three previously known quasars behind the central ~1.5 deg2 region of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). These were identified inExpand
Spectral index properties of milliJansky radio sources
At the faintest radio flux densities ( S 1.4 < 10 mJy), conflicting results have arisen regarding whether there is a flattening of the average spectral index between a low radio frequency (325 or 610Expand
Infrared-faint radio sources: a cosmological view - AGN number counts, the cosmic X-ray background and SMBH formation
Context. Infrared-faint radio sources (IFRS) are extragalactic emitters clearly detected at radio wavelengths but barely detected or undetected at optical and infrared wavelengths, with 5σExpand
The Σ-D analysis of recently detected radio planetary nebulae in the Magellanic Clouds
Aims. We investigate and analyze the radio surface brightness to diameter (∑-D) relation for recently detected, bright radio-continuum planetary nebulae (PNe) in the Magellanic Clouds (MC). Methods.Expand
