[26.14] Radio Observations of Galactic Unidentified EGRET Sources

The nature of the unidentified sources of high energy \gamma-ray emission in the Galaxy is one of the longest standing mysteries in high energy astrophysics. Here we present radio images made with the VLA and ATCA of several fields which contain sources bright in emission above 1 GeV. All of these fields have previously been imaged in 2-10 keV X-rays with ASCA. Several bright radio nebulae are revealed, some of which are coincident with extended X-ray nebulae, X-ray point sources, and/or radio pulsars. We comment on the liklihood of each radio nebula being powered by a young pulsar or whether some other source type is suggested.
