Abstract: We have imaged the H_2O maser and 22, 8, & 5 GHz continuum in the nucleus of NGC 3079, using the NRAO VLBA. The maser features are distributed over ~2 pc along an axis aligned with the plane of the kpc--scale edge--on molecular disk. The masers are not angularly coincident with any detected continuum emission. The two brightest continuum features, which trace a parsec--scale jet, have similar spectra that peak at frequencies nu > 5 GHz. We also detected faint maser emission along the jet axis.
