    The new high-Tc superconductor YBaCuO was prepared and characterized. Measurements were performed to determine the superconducting and magnetic properties of the samples. Onset of superconductivity was found above 90 K. Antiferromagnetism was also observed, probably associated with the nonsuperconducting pairs of the samples. Modest critical current density as well as large upper critical fields were inferred from the data.
