Abstract (from CDS):

The Westerbork Northern Sky Survey (WENSS) is a low-frequency radio survey that will cover the whole sky north of δ=30° at a wavelength of 92cm to a limiting flux density of approximately 18 mJy (5σrms). This survey has a resolution of 54" x 54" cosec δ and a positional accuracy for strong sources of 1.5". Here we present a source list comprising 11299 sources and maps of 120 extended sources for a 570 square degree region around the north ecliptic pole, the so-called mini-survey. We discuss the errors and reliability of the source parameters and the completeness of the survey.
