Abstract : Recently Sandage and Luyten were able to identify eleven quasi-stellar galaxies in a field of the Palomar Observatory-National Geographic Society Sky Survey. The objects have been selected on the basis of their optical properties alone. Thus the sample is unbiased with respect to the radio emission of the objects. A search in the 4C catalog shows that none of the objects is brighter than 2 . 10 to the -26th power/sq Wm/Hz at 178 MHz. It was possible, however, to detect faint radio emission from this sample of objects using the Owens Valley Radio Interferometer at a frequency of 2800 MHz. (Author)
