We present the third list with results of the Hamburg/SAO Survey for Emission-Line Galaxies (HSS therein, SAO – Special Astrophysical Observatory, Russia). This survey is based on the digitized objective-prism photoplate database of the Hamburg Quasar Survey (HQS). Here, we present new spectroscopic results of candidates which were obtained in 1998 with the 2.1 m KPNO and the 2.2 m Calar Alto telescopes. All candidates are selected in the declination band +35° to +40°. The follow-up spectroscopy with the 2 m class telescopes confirmed 85 emission-line objects out of 113 observed candidates and allowed their quantitative spectral classification. For 80 of them, the redshifts are determined for the first time. For 5 previously known ELGs, line ratios are presented for the first time. We could classify 55 out of the 85 emission-line objects as BCG/H ii galaxies or probable BCGs, 4 – as QSOs, 6 – as Seyfert galaxies, 1 – as super-association in a subluminous spiral galaxy, and 11 are low-excitation objects – either starburst nuclear (SBN), or dwarf amorphous nuclei starburst galaxies (DANS). We could not classify 8 ELGs. Further, for 8 more galaxies we did not detect any significant emission lines.
