1. The VSOP Survey Continuum Source List
The radio sample for the VSOP continuum survey was defined to include all extragalactic radio sources with:
The VSOP continuum source list contains 402 sources. Fifty of the sources have a spectral index somewhat less than -0.5 or lie within 10° of the galactic plane, and are not part of the 'complete' sample as defined above.
2. The VLBApls Source List
The goal of the VLBA observations was to determine which of the sources in the VSOP continuum list were sufficiently strong on the longest VLBA baseline (usually MK-SC, Mauna Kea to Saint Croix) for probable detection in a typical HALCA observation (detection level is ~0.1 Jy). For this reason we observed sources with the VLBA as far south as -44° where such information could be obtained. We also included 22 additional sources which were known to be highly variable but not included in the preliminary VSOP list in order to determine if their flux density in June 1996 was greater than 1 Jy. The source would then be included in the VSOP sample (three of the sources were found with a flux density above 1 Jy and added to the sample).
The VLBApls home page (and Table 1 of the paper) contains the list of 374 sources reported in the paper. This sample consists of 355 of 357 sources from the VSOP survey source list north of declination -44°, plus 19 sources with S<1.0 Jy.
