Abstract: We have selected a field from the VLA FIRST Survey which is typical in all aspects except one: it contains a bright, but extremely compact VLBI calibrator - J1159+291. 127 unresolved FIRST sources with SFIRST >= 10 mJy lie within 2.5 deg of this calibrator. lambda 6 cm MERLIN observations with a resolution ~60 mas detect around half the sources. These detections form the basis of a sample of faint but compact radio sources which are ideally suited to follow-up VLBI observations.
