One of the principal problems in the radio astronomy of the discrete sources is their identification with visible objects. Identification is necessary in . most instances to determine the distance of a source and thus its intrinsic luminosity. It is of assistance in deciding the probable mechanism for the radio emission. Identification of a reasonable sample of radio sources should be made prior to speculations from statistical studies of the radio sources as a class.
