The rotational absorption frequencies of 68 new lines from the HCO radical in its ground electronic state have been measured in the millimeter and submillimeter spectral region. The large zero-field data set acquired has allowed the complex spectrum of this light asymmetric rotor with unpaired electronic spin and magnetic hyperfine interactions to be completely analyzed to within experimental accuracy (<0.1 MHz) for the first time. The wide range of states observed provides a highly accurate map of the rotational frequencies of the formyl radical, which should enable the abundance and excitation of interstellar HCO to be examined in detail.
