Angular Measurements of the Structure of 3C 446 and Other Quasars with High Red-shifts


Measurements of the radio source 3C 446 show that it is elongated in the east–west direction and may well be a double source. 3C 9 also seems to be a double source, and PKS 1116 + 12 and 4C 31.38 have angular dimensions <0.1 and <0.2 sec arc, respectively, in at least one direction.
