Do CRAFT Fast Radio Bursts repeat?

Do any of the CRAFT Fast Radio Bursts repeat?

We have been using the 64-m Parkes radio telescope to search for repeated emission from ASKAP-detected fast radio bursts.The higher sensitivity of the Parkes receiving system can be used to place strong  constraints on emission from the bursts.

The searches have utilized the 20-cm multibeam receiver and the BPSR backend to conduct real-time searches.  When commissioned we expect to use the ultrawideband-low system and Medusa backend.

Results of the searches will be announced soon.
