Abstract

We present high-resolution VLA images at 8.4 GHz of three Fanaroff-Riley class II (FR II) radio galaxies (RGs; 3C 42, 3C 244.1, and 3C 330) and two FR II quasars (QSRs; 3C 9 and 3C 208) as part of a study to obtain high-resolution images of the hot spots. No jet is detected in the three RGs, but the hot spots, well imaged at 0″.22 resolution, show many details not previously observed. For the two QSRs, we have made good images of the known jets at this resolution. The overall morphology and location of the hot spots (i.e., whether they are at the outer edges of the radio lobe or embedded within it) are discussed.
