PMN J1603$-$4904 is a likely member of the rare class of $\gamma$-ray emitting young radio galaxies. Only one other source, PKS 1718$-$649, has been confirmed so far. These objects, which may transition into larger radio galaxies, are a stepping stone to understanding AGN evolution. It is not completely clear how these young galaxies, seen edge-on, can produce high-energy $\gamma$-rays. PMN J1603$-$4904 has been detected by TANAMI Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) observations and has…

γ-ray emission in radio galaxies under the VLBI scope

Aims. This is the second paper in our series studying the evolution of parsec-scale radio emission in radio galaxies in the Southern Hemisphere. Following our study of the radio and high-energy

TXS 0128+554: A Young Gamma-Ray-emitting Active Galactic Nucleus with Episodic Jet Activity

We have carried out a Chandra X-ray and multifrequency radio Very Long Baseline Array study of the active galactic nucleus (AGN) TXS 0128+554, which is associated with the Fermi γ-ray source 4FGL

Catalog of Long-term Transient Sources in the First 10 yr of Fermi-LAT Data

We present the first Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) catalog of long-term γ-ray transient sources (1FLT). This comprises sources that were detected on monthly time intervals during the first decade

The unusual multiwavelength properties of the gamma-ray source PMN J1603−4904

Context: We investigate the nature and classification of PMN J1603−4904, a bright radio source close to the Galactic plane, which is associated with one of the brightest hard-spectrum γ-ray

The MHz-peaked radio spectrum of the unusual γ-ray source PMN J1603–4904

Context. The majority of bright extragalactic γ-ray sources are blazars. Only a few radio galaxies have been detected by Fermi/LAT. Recently, the GHz-peaked spectrum source PKS 1718–649 was confirmed

Optical-NIR spectroscopy of the puzzling gamma-ray source 3FGL 1603.9-4903/PMN J1603-4904 with X-shooter

The Fermi/LAT instrument has detected about two thousands Extragalactic High Energy (E > 100 MeV) gamma-ray sources. One of the brightest is 3FGL 1603.9-4903, associated to the radio source PMN

Investigating powerful jets in radio-loud narrow-line Seyfert 1s

We report results on multiband observations from radio to gamma-rays of the two radio-loud narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLSy1) galaxies PKS 2004-447 and J1548+3511. Both sources show a core-jet structure

The Fermi-LAT view of young radio sources

Compact Symmetric Objects (CSO) are considered to be the young version of Fanaroff-Riley type I and type II radio galaxies, with typical sizes smaller than 1 kpc and ages of the order of a few
