ARG00011k9, two emissions and hosts, and artifacts?
The contour overlay image in this post was created from sources, and using methods, described in this RGZ Talk
thread. First contours red, Wise Band 1 lime green.
The host for the centre lobe emission appears to be SDSS J124649.93+420718.9, which is a #QSO, has a z_sp=1.231 +/-0.00062, and radio references in NED and SIMBAD. There is an ALLWISE reference also, ALLWISE J124649.93+420718.9.
To the SW of SDSS J124649.93+420718.9 is SDSS J124649.48+420706.9, which appears to be a faint #green galaxy, with a z_ph=0.321 ± 0.2309. This galaxy has recorded First flux emission, and references in NED and SIMBAD. This object is located on the SW centre lobe.
It appears that this ARG field contains two separate emissions which are #overlapping, with two very visible hosts. As for the #diffuse lobes to the NE and SW being #artifacts, there is a Wise Band 1 emission which coincides with the First emission to the SW, but not the NE.
As always, comments, suggestions, welcome.

What signal-to-noise contour do you start the radio with?
Here's the parameters I used for this image:
Wnsignoise = 1 # Wise noise floor, in sigmas;
Wsf = 2 # Wise contour scale factor;
Wsmooth = 2 # sigma for gaussian smoothing (Wise contours).
Fnsignoise = 2.5 # FIRST noise floor, in sigmas;
Fsf = 2 # FIRST contour scale factor;
Fsmooth = 4 # sigma for gaussian smoothing (FIRST contours).
I'm looking at the NE FIRST contours. There are two. So the lowest contour here is 4, then the next one is 6? I'm trying to decide if the radio emission in the NE relates to the radio emission in the centre. I think that everything goes together and the host is the central galaxy.
