Abstract

Since September 2005, the Whipple 10 m Gamma-ray Telescope has been used primarily to monitor known TeV AGN. The five Northern Hemisphere blazars that have been previously detected at Whipple, (Markarian 421, H1426+428, Markarian 501, 1ES 1959+650 and 1ES 2344+514) are monitored each night that they are visible. A number of multiwavelength observing campaigns have been undertaken by many collaborators in conjunction with the Whipple program and a significant amount of data has been accumulated. We report here on the status of these multiwavelength observations and present light curves of radio, optical, X-ray and gamma-ray data.
