[55.06] Improving the Local Radio Luminosity Function at Low Luminosities

M. Caler (Colgate University), R.B. Partridge (Haverford College)

We conducted a VLA survey at 20 cm wavelength covering part of the 15-16h, +29-30 degree, field of the CfA Century survey. At flux levels down to 0.2 mJy, we detected 854 radio sources. Our radio flux densities, combined with redshifts from both the CfA surveys (Wegner, et al., astro-ph 0109101) and the KISS survey (Salzer, et al., AJ 120, p. 80, 2000), allow us to calculate radio luminosities, and thus to improve the Radio Luminosity Function for local (z < 0.1) galaxies.
