Here we point out that an observation of Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Ray (UHECR) photons, “GZK photons”, could provide an upper limit on the level of the ExtraGalactic Radio Background, depending on the level of UHECR proton primaries (to be determined after a few years of data taking by the Pierre Auger Observatory upgrade AugerPrime). We also update our 2005 prediction of the range of GZK photon fluxes expected from proton primaries. ar X iv :2 20 6. 00 40 8v 1 [ as tr oph .H E ] 1 J un 2 02 2

GZK Photons Above 10-EeV
We calculate the flux of "GZK-photons", namely the flux of photons produced by extragalactic nucleons through the resonant photoproduction of pions, the so called GZK effect. This flux depends on the

TLDR
This work measures, for the first time, the source count distribution, dN/dS, of extragalactic γ-ray sources at E>50  GeV and finds that it is compatible with a Euclidean distribution down to the lowest measured source flux in the 2FHL.
Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays: propagation in the Galaxy and anisotropy
We considered propagation of Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECR) through the galaxy. We investigated models with sources of UHECR distributed in the same way as Cold Dark Matter (CDM) in a

We calculate the flux of “GZK photons,” namely, the flux of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) consisting of photons produced by extragalactic nucleons through the resonant photoproduction of

The recent detection of the “cosmic dawn” redshifted 21 cm signal at 78 MHz by the Experiment to Detect the Global EoR Signatures (EDGES) differs significantly from theoretical predictions. In
