Just over 24 hours search data for FRBs at Molonglo. FRB candidates are shown as blue circles, and the bright pulsars Vela (magenta) and J1644-4559 (orange) are shown transiting the search region on the telescope meridian. Over 500 hours of search data have been used to set new upper limits on the FRB rate at 843 MHz.


Are the distributions of Fast Radio Burst properties consistent with a cosmological population? M.Caleb, C.Flynn, M.Bailes, E.D.Barr, R.W.Hunstead, E.F.Keane, V.Ravi, W. van Straten (2015).

Distributions in simulations of the slope of the logN-LogS relation for FRBs in two models of their comoving densities in LCDM cosmologies. The distributions are found to be consistent with observations of FRBs in the HILAT survey conducted at Parkes Radio Telescope, and thus consistent with them being of cosmological origin.
