AbstractWe present the results of the northern extension of the HI Parkes Zone of Avoidance Survey, a blind HI survey utilizing the multibeam receiver on the Parkes 64-m telescope. In the two regions studied here, l=36 to 52 deg. and l=196 to 212 deg., |b|<5 deg., we have detected 77 HI galaxies, twenty of which have been previously detected in HI. The survey has a median rms noise of 6.0 mJy/beam and is complete to a mean flux density of 22 mJy. We have searched for multiwavelength counterparts to the 77 galaxies detected here: 19, 27, and 11 have a likely optical, 2MASS, and IRAS cataloged counterpart, respectively. A further 16 galaxies have likely visible counterparts on the Digitized Sky Survey. The detection of these 77 galaxies allows a closer inspection of the large-scale structures in these regions. We see several filaments crossing the Galactic plane, one of which appears to be the continuation of a sine-wave like feature that can be traced across the whole southern sky. An analysis of the HI mass function suggests that the regions studied here may be underdense. One particularly noteworthy galaxy is HIZOA J0630+08 (l,b = 203 deg., -0.9 deg.) with a velocity of 367 km/s. We suggest that it belongs to the nearby Orion Group which includes a small number of dwarf galaxies. The newly detected galaxies improve our understanding of the properties of several voids, such as the Orion, Gemini, and Canis Major Voids.
