Abstract: A new high-sensitivity HI survey of the southern sky was made south of Declination -25^{o}, at the Instituto Argentino de Radioastronomia (IAR), on a half-degree grid in galactic coordinates. A total of 50980 positions were observed. One of the goals of this survey was to search for high velocity clouds (HVCs). The HI profiles have been smoothed to a velocity resolution of 8 kms. The resulting rms noise falls in the range 0.015 to 0.020 K. To date we have detected 5828 high velocity (HV) components, 5324 at positive and 504 at negative velocities.
