This paper reports on a high sensitivity $\lambda$ 21-cm neutral hydrogen survey of the sky south of $\delta\leq$ -25$^\circ$. A total of 50980 positions lying on a galactic coordinate grid with points spaced by ( $\bigtriangleup$l, $\bigtriangleup$b) = (0 $.\!\!^\circ$5/cos b, 0 $.\!\!^\circ$5), were observed with the 30 m dish of the Instituto Argentino de Radioastronomía (IAR). The angular resolution of the survey is HPBW = 30$^\prime$, and the velocity coverage spans the interval -450 $\rm\, km\, s^{-1}$ to +400 $\rm\, km\, s^{-1}$ (LSR). The velocity resolution is 1.27 $\rm\, km\, s^{-1}$ and the final rms noise of the entire database is $\sim$ 0.07 K. The brightness temperature scale is accurate to 5%.
