    Several new main line OH masers have been detected in the nearby starburst galaxy M82. Eight masers have been detected to 5σ, six of which are new detections. Observations covering both the 1665 and 1667 MHz lines with both the Very Large Array (VLA) and the Multi-Element Radio Linked Interferometer Network (MERLIN) have been used to accurately measure the positions and velocities of these features. Following analysis of the data, another six objects below 5σ, but with velocities consistent with the distribution inferred from the more certain detections, have been detected. These are classified as possible detections. (astro-ph/0412673)
