Using the data observed in San Juan with the photoelectric Astrolabe Mark II of the Beijing Astronomical Observatory from February, 1992 to March, 1997, the radio star catalogue in San Juan(RSSJ95) has been compiled. There are 69 radio stars in this catalogue. The positions of the radio stars are for the epoch of observation and the equinox J2000.0 and a system close to that of the system FK5. The mean precisions are $\pm$2.2 ms and $\pm$0.035'' in right ascensions and declinations, respectively. The magnitudes of stars are from 0.9 to 10.7. The declinations are from $-2\hbox{$.\!\!^\circ$}5$ to $-60^{\circ}$. The mean epoch is 1995.1. Finally, the comparison results between the Hipparcos catalogue and RSSJ95 are given.
