A total of 50 optically selected polar ring galaxies, polar ring galaxy
candidates and related objects were observed in the 21-cm H I
with the Nançay 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
and/or bright (mB
< 15.5). The H I
line data are presented for all
74 galaxies observed for the survey with the Effelsberg, Green Bank or Nançay radio
telescopes, as well as all other published H I
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.
