Extract

The normal spiral galaxy M81, which has some characteristics of a Seyfert (Peimbert, Torres-Peimbert, 1981), has a flat spectrum in the radio range (de Bruyn et al., 1976), variable on the time scale of days (Crane et al., 1976), and detectable radiation at infrared (Rieke, Lebofsky, 1978) and X-ray wavelengths (Elvis, van Speybroeck, 1981). At a distance of ∼3.3 Mpc, M81 is the nearest extragalactic object with a nucleus detectable with VLBI (Kellermann et al., 1976). We report here on simultaneous VLBI observations made with the Mark III system at 2.3 and 8.3 GHz. Observations on 14 and 16 March 1981 utilized the 100 m diameter telescope in Effelsberg, W. Germany (MPIR); the 43 m telescope at Green Bank, WV (NRAO); and the 40 m telescope near Big Pine, CA (OVRO).
