Decimetric radio observations of the impulsive solar flare on October 5, 1992, 09:25 UT show a long series of quasi-periodic pulsations deeply modulating a continuum in the 0.6–2 GHz range that is slowly drifting toward lower frequencies. We propose a model in which the pulsations of the radio flux are caused by quasi-periodic particle acceleration episodes that result from a dynamic phase of magnetic reconnection in a large-scale current sheet. The reconnection is dominated by repeated… CONTINUE READING
