(1990 southern-hemisphere radio surveys)
The Parkes-MIT-NRAO Surveys (PMN) are radio
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 from its usual place on the
Green Bank 300ft Telescope, the "Green Bank Telescope" of the time.
It is the southern hemisphere analog of the Green Bank 6-cm Radio Source Catalog.
Many radio galaxies were discovered and still are known
by their "PMN" designation.
