We present Walraven photometry and ROSAT All-Sky Survey data for a sample of 173 bright main-sequence stars with spectral types between A8V and G2V. These observations are part of a study of the onset of magnetic surface activity along the main sequence. Values for the effective temperature, surface gravity and interstellar reddening have been obtained from a comparison of the observed Walraven colours with theoretical values. These parameters have been used to derive accurate X-ray surface flux densities.
