We have initiated a 3 mm spectral line survey toward the hot molecular core Sagittarius~B2(N-LMH). This is the first spectral line survey of the Sgr~B2(N) region utilizing data from both an interferometer (BIMA Array) and a single-element radio telescope (NRAO 12 meter). In this survey, covering 3.6 GHz in bandwidth, we detected 237 lines (90 identified molecular transitions, 1 electronic transition, and 148 unidentified transitions). Furthermore, the data provide information that could not be obtained by either instrument alone.

Presented at the 58th International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy, June 2003
