Kus A. J., Marecki A., Neff S., Van Ardenne A., Wilkinson P. N.

Observations of the quasar 3C286 with the EVN at 609 and 1420 MHz are reported. Results are presented on source size, the steepening of the spectral index, the IC X-ray flux, and surface brightness temperature. It is concluded that 3C286 appears to be not as energetic as the other 3C sources of the class.
