We present radial velocities for nearby dwarf galaxy candidates found by Karachentseva & Karachentsev (1998) on the POSS-II films. Out of 118 observed objects, 88 have been detected in the Hα line. Their median radial velocity is 1750 km s-1. A quarter of the galaxies belong to the Local Volume, having corrected radial velocities km s-1. Some of them are members of the nearby groups around Maffei/IC 342, M 81, and NGC 6946.
Key words: galaxies: dwarf
