Abstract:

We present a comprehensive list of integrated radio continuum flux density measurements for 32 first- quadrant Galactic supernova remnants SNRs. The list includes all available measurements from the literature, as well as some previously unpublished low-frequency measurements from the Clark Lake Galactic plane survey. All measurements have been placed on the same absolute flux density scale, and those which are deemed poor or otherwise inappropriate for the purposes of constructing continuum spectra have been noted. This compilation has been used in a separate paper to construct accurate spectra and to constrain the distribution and physical properties of ionized gas in the interstellar medium.
