Abstract (from CDS):

We report the flux measurement of the Vela-like pulsar B1800-21 at the low radio frequency regime over multiple epochs spanning several years. The spectrum shows a turnover around the GHz frequency range and represents a typical example of gigahertz-peaked spectrum (GPS) pulsar. Our observations revealed that the pulsar spectrum show a significant evolution during the observing period with the low-frequency part of the spectrum becoming steeper, with a higher turnover frequency, for a period of several years before reverting back to the initial shape during the latest measurements. The spectral change over times spanning several years requires dense structures, with free electron densities around 1000-20 000/cm3 and physical dimensions ∼220 au, in the interstellar medium (ISM) traversing across the pulsar line of sight. We look into the possible sites of such structures in the ISM and likely mechanisms particularly the thermal free-free absorption as possible explanations for the change.
