Abstract

We present the new pulsars discovered in the 350-MHz survey with the Green Bank Telescope. The survey took advantage of the time available during the track refurbishing during the Northern hemisphere summer of 2007. So far we have discovered 26 new pulsars, including 5 millisecond pulsars, 6 binary pulsars, and 1 rotating radio transient in the 1491 hours of data. Many exciting pulsars have been discovered but in the present work together with the survey overview we highlight only one pulsar, J2222-0137, a pulsar with a minimum mass companion of 1.1M and the second lowest dispersion measure of any known binary pulsar.
