We present calibrations for star formation rate (SFR) indicators in the ultraviolet, mid-infrared, and radio-continuum bands, including one of the first direct calibrations of 150 MHz as an SFR indicator. Our calibrations utilize 66 nearby star-forming galaxies with Balmer-decrement-corrected ${\rm{H}}\alpha $ luminosities, which span five orders of magnitude in SFR and have absolute magnitudes of $-24\lt {M}_{r}\lt -12$. Most of our photometry and spectrophotometry are measured from the same...[Show more]
