  • The recent CHIME/FRB and STARE2 detection of an extremely bright (fluence ∼MJy ms) radio burst from the Galactic magnetar SGR 1935+2154 supports the hypothesis that (some) fast radio bursts (FRBs) are emitted by magnetars at cosmological distances. With the aim of detecting more bursts from SGR 1935+2154, we performed monitoring observations of the source using (up to) four small radio telescopes observing simultaneously at complementary radio frequencies, spanning the range from 327 MHz to 8.6… CONTINUE READING
