The University of Durham Mark 6 telescope has been used to make observations of a number of AGNs visible from the Southern Hemisphere. Limits to VHE gamma ray emission from IES 0323+022, PKS 0829+046, IES 1101-232, Cen A, PKS 1514-24, RXJ 10578-275 and IES 2316-423 are presented, both for steady emission and for outbursts on timescales of ∼1 day. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    AGN, active galactic nuclei, are luminous objects at cosmological distances, which have been reported as sources of high energy γ-rays. The emission is probably nonthermal radiation from relativistic jets belonging to the AGN. Earlier investigations of these processes have suggested that...

    We present first results from the analysis of multi-epoch VLBI observations of the EGRET detected sources in the CJ-F sample (Caltech Jodrell-Flat-spectrum,). These objects form a subsample of 14 sources within the 293 AGN of the full CJ-F sample. 5 GHz VLBI snapshot observations of the CJ-F...

    It has been suggested that relativistic outflows may power the jets of active galactic nuclei and gamma-ray bursts. We address the important issue how the kinetic energy of collimated outflows is converted into radiation. It is shown that swept-up ambient matter is quickly isotropised in the...

    Gamma-ray emission from AGN provides us with unprecedented insights into the physics of extragalactic jets. The emission from these jets fits naturally into the existing theoretical framework of relativistic jets as inferred from parsec scale and kiloparsec scale observations. Models of the...

    We have made total flux density observations at high radio frequencies (90 and 230 GHz) of 12 Southern sources that were classified as possible ERGET identifications in the Third EGRET Catalog. Our observations confirm the blazar-nature of 9 of them. We have also studied sources that we...

    We present multiwavelength data for the variable EGRET sources 3EG J2006-2321 and 3EG J0433+2908. The former is listed as unidentified in the 3rd EGRET Catalog and the latter is listed as an AGN; however, as yet there has been no formal presentation of its broad-band characteristics. The most...

    BL Lacertae objects are a class of AGN which are believed to be highly beamed. Very high energy gamma-rays emitted from such objects provide important information that improves our understanding of this class of objects. Only two AGNs, Mrk 421 and Mrk 501, are well established TeV emitters in...
