Abstract : As part of a continuing study employing the Owens Valley Radio Observatory's twin-element interferometer to provide high angular resolution measurements of the various radio source properties the Fourier transforms of the distributions of the Stokes parameters Q, U, and V were measured at several antenna spacings along an east-west baseline. The present paper catalogs these measurements, while a subsequent paper will interpret them in terms of the structure of the polarized radiation along a circle of constant declination. (Author)
