A radio survey at a frequency of 843 MHz of 36 square degrees containing the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) has been made with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST). The angular resolution is around 45 arcsec and the rms noise is about 1 mJy per beam. The radio image of the region is presented showing over a thousand sources with a variety of angular sizes from unresolved to 10 arcmin. Most of the sources are presumed to be background objects but about 70 of the more extended sources are H II regions or supernova remnants within the SMC.
