Radiative transition probabilities filling vacancies in atomic N subshells have been calculated relativistically for six elements with atomic number between Z= 66 and 92. The relativistic Hartree-Fock-Slater wave functions are used and contributions from all multipoles are included. The results are compared with those of nonrelativistic calculations. Relativistic effects are found to be significant for the transition involving N1- and N2-shell vacancies.
