Abstract

VLA observations at 8.4 GHz of two Fanaroff-Riley class II (FR II) radio galaxies (RGs; 3C 265 and 3C 324) and eight FR II quasars (QSRs; 3C 175, 3C 204, 3C 215, 3C 249.1, 3C 263, 3C 336, 3C 351, and 3C 432) are presented as part of a program to obtain high-resolution images of the hot spots of 13 FR II QSRs and 13 FR II RGs with classical double structures. The 16 hot spots identified in these sources are well resolved. In terms of location, nine hot spots are "edged" hot spots, while the remaining are "recessed" hot spots. The previously known jets for all of the QSRs are well imaged at this resolution. We discuss the overall source morphology and the structure and location of the hot spot (i.e., whether it is located at the outer edges of the radio lobe or recessed).
