This paper describes a correlator that is optimized for the Xilinx Virtex-4 SX FPGA, and its application in the SKAMP radio telescope at the Molonglo Radio Observatory. The digital backend of the SKAMP telescope consists of more than 800 Virtex-4 FPGAs. Correlation is performed between each and every pairing of antenna inputs, so the SKAMP telescope, with(More)
Jupiter's nonthermal microwave emission, as measured by a global network of 11 radio telescopes, increased dramatically during the Shoemaker-Levy 9 impacts. The increase was wavelength-dependent, varying from approximately 10 percent at 70 to 90 centimeters to approximately 45 percent at 6 and 36 centimeters. The radio spectrum hardened (flattened toward(More)
We have observed the black hole candidate X-ray binary GX 339-4 at radio wavelengths before, during and after the 1998 high/soft X-ray state transition. We find that the radio emission from the system is strongly correlated with the hard X-ray emission and is reduced by a factor ≥ 25 during the high/soft state compared to the more usual low/hard state. At(More)
Soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs) are 'magnetars', a small class of slowly spinning neutron stars with extreme surface magnetic fields, B approximately 10(15) gauss (refs 1 , 2 -3). On 27 December 2004, a giant flare was detected from the magnetar SGR 1806-20 (ref. 2), only the third such event recorded. This burst of energy was detected by a variety of(More)
We report multifrequency radio observations of XTEJ1550−564 obtained with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope and the Australia Telescope Compact Array at the time of its discovery and subsequent hard and soft X-ray outburst in 1998 September. A large radio flare was observed, peaking about 1.8 days after the X-ray flare. In addition, we present(More)
In conjunction with the Australian Government’s Spectrum Management Agency, experimental tests have been carried out to determine the susceptibility of the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST) to interference from terrestrial transmitters. The motivation for the tests was to reconcile the conflicting requirements of the MOST, which is committed(More)
We revisit the discovery outburst of the X-ray transient XTE J1550−564 during which relativistic jets were observed in 1998 September, and review the radio images obtained with the Australian Long Baseline Array, and lightcurves obtained with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope and the Australia Telescope Compact Array. Based on Hi spectra, we(More)
The black hole candidate GX 339–4 was first detected as a variable radio source by Sood & Campbell Wilson [14] in May 1994 with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST). Since then, several observations have been obtained with the Australian Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) in order to study the radio behavior of this source in relation to its soft(More)
