### Remove Numbers from Bibliography Items

Good morning,

I am experiencing the following problem and I wonder if anybody knows a possible solution.

I am using {thebibliography} environment to prepare an article and I enter the single entry using \bibitem. As example, the following code.
\begin{thebibliography}{99}   \bibitem{Askne} Askne J, Nordius H (1987) Estimation of tropospheric delay for microwave from surface weather data, Rad Sci, 22:379-386\end{thebibliography}

It produces this text.
1. Askne J, Nordius H (1987) Estimation of tropospheric delay for microwave from surface weather data, Rad Sci, 22:379-386

Now, my problem is that I do not want the number in front of the bibliography entry to be printed at all. My wish would be to have the following text.
Askne J, Nordius H (1987) Estimation of tropospheric delay for microwave from surface weather data, Rad Sci, 22:379-386

Does anybody know a possible solution to that using \bibitem or even another approach?

I thank you very much for your support and I hope to hearing back from you soon.

Regards,
fastest

Reason: Longer passages of source code are tagged as code block, not as in-line code.

How are citations in the text going to be assigned correctly to the corresponding bibliography items then?
