Abstract : Linear polarization measurements at 6 cm wavelength with the Parkes 210 ft telescope are given for 706 sources. Comparison of polarization parameters and flux densities with other published data is made. For the variable sources it is found that changes in polarized flux and position angle can accompany changes in intensity. (Author)
