Sources flagged as extended or multiple in the Molonglo Reference Catalogue (MRC, Large et al. 1981, 1991), south of δ = −30°, were observed with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST) with a resolution of 44 arcsec at 843 MHz (Jones and McAdam 1992) to give a sample of 193 southern extended sources. Optical identifications were made using the UKST bJ sky survey. We are now using the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) near Narrabri in Australia to study a subsample of Fanaroff-Riley class I radio galaxies and fit models to the jets.
