The Revised 3C Catalogue of Radio sources
The basis of these catalogs was a 178 MHz survey with an interferometer
consisting of cylindrical paraboloid with sizes 435x20m (W-E)
an cylindrical paraboloid with sizes 57x20m (N-S).
The 3CR catalog covers the region DEC > -0.5^o (except the Galactic plane).
The catalog contains 328 sources above a lower limit of 9 Jy.
3C sources have only integer numbers in their names, e.g. 3C193.
Sources in 3CR but not in 3C were given non-zero decimals like
3C249.1, while the original 3C sources were given a zero after number,

The third update of the status of the 3CR sources: further new redshifts
and new identification of the distant galaxies
H.Spinrad, S. Diorgovski, J. Marr, L. Aguilar
We present the third major update of new optical and radio data for the strong
sources in the 3CR catalog. New positions, redshifts, magnitudes, and
identifications have been included as well as some radio data for the sample
of the 298 extragalactic 3CR sources. A new and extended bibliography of
optical and radio data is included.
The 3CR sources have now reached an almost satisfactory state of optical
identification: 91 % of the sources at |b| > = 10^o now have firm
identifications and we have spectra for most of them. The few remaining faint
objects at high latitude are, of course, important, as they tend to be
the most luminous radio sources known. Full completion of the 3CR data will
aid in reducing the residual uncertainties at the luminous end of the
evolving radio luminosity function.
Finally, we present some new identifications and new spectroscopic data
for 29 faint 3CR galaxies, and one quasar.
