3C 216: Is It the CSS Source with the Highest Rotation Measure?

Abstract

We discuss our VLBA observations at 5 and 2.7 GHz and our MERLIN observations at 1.6 and 5 GHz. A MERLIN+VLBA image provided good starting model for self-calibration and we obtained an unprecedent image of the bent jet of 3C 216. Our observations suggest the detection of strong polarization position angle variation across the observing band. If this is due to Faraday rotation then 3C216 may have a four-figure observed rotation measure, which is unlikely to be due to errors in the polarization position angle calibration.
