Abstract I present a catalogue of the positions and correlated flux densities of 109 compact extragalactic radio sources in the Galactic plane determined from an analysis of a 48-h Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) experiment at 22 GHz with the European VLBI Network. The median position uncertainty is 9 mas. The correlated flux densities of the detected sources are in the range of 2-300 mJy. In addition to the target sources, nine water masers have been detected, of which two are new. I derived the positions of the masers with an accuracy of 30-200 mas and determined the velocities of the maser components and their correlated flux densities. The catalogue and the supporting material are available at http://astrogeo.org/egaps.
