Unusual signals from pulsating radio sources have been recorded at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory. The radiation seems to come from local objects within the galaxy, and may be associated with oscillations of white dwarf or neutron stars. 
Rapidly Pulsing Radio Sources
The gravitational lens effect associated with a neutron star binary gives results which agree well with recent observations of a new class of rapidly pulsing radio sources. Further tests of the
New Pulsating Radio Source
Harvard radio astronomers have discovered a new pulsating radio source with a pulse repetition period of 0.73968 ± 0.00002 s.
Pulsed Radio Sources
The bursts of radio waves at decametric wavelengths emitted by Jupiter suggest a model for producing the signals from the pulsating radio sources. This mechanism includes polarization of the signals
Measurement of the Interstellar Magnetic Field
The discovery that signals from pulsating radio sources are linearly polarized means that interstellar magnetic fields in the local part of the Galaxy can be measured.
Pulsars: Observations of Spectra
Dynamic spectrograms of two of the recently discovered pulsating radio sources have been obtained. The data provide the instantaneous spectrum and the time-frequency history of the signals over a
Measurements of the Pulse Shape and Spectra of the Pulsating Radio Sources
Simultaneous measurements of the pulsating radio signals at several frequencies have been made with the 250 ft. telescope at Jodrell Bank. Some of the pulses are double, suggesting two separated
Pulsating Radio Source at α = 19h19m, δ = +22°
Signals from one of the rapidly pulsating radio sources have been recorded on three frequencies using the mark I radio telescope at the Nuffield Radio Astronomy Laboratories. The size of the source,
Radio Pulse Profiles from Pulsating White Dwarfs
Radii and relative rotation rates have been deduced for the four known pulsating radio sources. Most of the emission appears to come from a wide belt near latitude 20° in each hemisphere, a
Pulsar Search at the Molonglo Radio Observatory
Seven new pulsars are reported from the Molonglo radio observatory. Some conclusions can be drawn about the distribution of pulsars in the galaxy.
A SUMMARY OF RADIO PULSAR POLARIZATION
Pulsars are one of the most polarized radio sources in the universe. Polarization measurements of pulsars provide us a lot of information, not only about the emission process itself, but also about
