Abstract: The clustering of radio sources in the NRAO VLA Sky Survey has been investigated on all scales with three techniques: angular two-point correlation, counts-in-cells, and the angular power spectrum. Instrumental effects, surface-density gradients and over-resolution, affect these measures and required careful consideration before cosmological results could be deduced. These results include a measurement of the correlation length ro ∼ 8h-1 Mpc for radio galaxies; an estimation of the initial mass perturbation spectrum from the angular power spectrum; and detection of the cosmological velocity dipole in the surface density of NVSS sources.
