Abstract

Radio continuum observations obtained with the Westerbork Radio Synthesis Telescope at 0.6 GHz of four groups of galaxies in the Coma/A1367 supercluster area are presented. Ninety-nine CGCG galaxies were surveyed, yielding the detection of 21 objects. A wide-angle-tail radio galaxy, NGC 4061, is found in the NGC 4065 group. Analysis of this source suggests a relatively low value (neT ≡ 1000 cm-3K) for the intracluster gas pressure in this group.
