We have detected in H [FORMULA] three very nearby ([FORMULA] 3 Mpc) irregular dwarf galaxies, which have been observed but undetected in HI. Their heliocentric radial velocities are: -64 km/s (Cam C), +445 km/s (Arp 211), and -141 km/s (NGC 6789) with the standard error [FORMULA] 8 km/s.

Key words: galaxies: individual: Cam C=G 0318+6236: Arp 211: NGC 6789 – galaxies: irregular – local group – galaxies: distances and redshifts
