Abstract: A list of 750 objects has been compiled in the Astrophysical CATalogs Support System (CATS) database with cross-identifications of IRAS catalogues and the source catalogue of Texas survey at 365 MHz. We have carried out a search for optical counterparts of those objects, where the difference in positions between the two catalogues and the APM is less than 3??. One of these sources, IRAS F02044+0957, was observed with the RATAN-600 radio telescope at four frequencies in April 1999. Optical spectroscopy of the components of the system, was made with the 2.1m telescope of the Guillermo Haro Observatory. The radio and optical spectra, the NVSS radio map, and the optical and infrared images allow us to conclude that the steep spectrum (α=-0.94 ? 0.02) radio source IRAS F02044+0957 is a pair of interacting galaxies, a LINER and a HII galaxy, at z=0.093, most likely belonging to Zwicky 619 cluster.
