Green Bank 6-cm Radio Source Catalog

(GB6)
(catalog of from 1980s northern-hemisphere radio survey)

The Green Bank 6-cm Radio source Catalog (GB6) is an astronomical catalog from an radio astronomical survey of the northern hemisphere conducted in 1986-1987 by the Green Bank 300ft Telescope (GB300) at Green Bank Observatory (GBO), using the NRAO Seven-beam Receiver. Many radio galaxies were discovered and still are known by their "GB6" designation.

The Parkes-MIT-NRAO Surveys comprise the southern hemisphere analog.
