  • We present a survey for transient and variable sources, on timescales from 28 seconds to $\sim$1 year, using the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) at 182 MHz. Down to a detection threshold of 0.285 Jy, no transient candidates were identified, making this the most constraining low-frequency survey to date and placing a limit on the surface density of transients of $<4.1 \times 10^{-7}$ deg$^{-2}$ for the shortest timescale considered. At these frequencies, emission from Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) is… CONTINUE READING
