A total of 50 optically selected polar ring galaxies, polar ring galaxy candidates and related objects were observed in the 21-cm line with the decimetric radio telescope and 31 were detected. The objects, selected by their optical morphology, are all north of declination -39, and generally relatively nearby (V < 8000 ) and/or bright ( 15.5). The line data are presented for all 74 galaxies observed for the survey with the , or radio telescopes, as well as all other published line parameters of these objects. Three objects were observed and detected by us at Parkes. A total of 59 objects were detected. For each object a brief description is given based on a literature search.
