Abstract

We have made radio continuum observations with the ATCA (Australia Telescope Compact Array)* at 3 and 6 cm of the dark cloud DC 303.8-14.2 in order to study the content of young stellar objects (YSOs) in this cloud. Four unresolved sources were found within the cloud's boundary. One of these in coincident with IRAS 13036-7644, a very low luminosity YSO driving a bipolar molecular outflow. We have interpreted its emission in terms of optically thin thermal free-free emission, although within errors also non-thermal emission is possible. The possible source of ionization is discussed.
