  • The FIRST radio survey provides a new resource for constructing a large quasar sample. With source positions accurate to better than 1{double_prime} and a point source sensitivity limit of 1 mJy, it reaches 50 times deeper than previous radio catalogs. We report here on the results of the pilot phase for a FIRST Bright Quasar Survey (FBQS). Based on matching the radio catalog from the initial 300 deg{sup 2} of FIRST coverage with the optical catalog from the Automated Plate Machine (APM… CONTINUE READING
