The late-type edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 4631 is known for its high star formation rate and extended radio halo with a uniform magnetic field component ordered predominantly perpendicular to the plane of the galaxy in the inner 6 kpc (assuming a distance of 7.5 Mpc, 1′ = 2.2 kpc) (Hummel et al. 1988; Golla, Ph.D., in preparation). The strongest radio continuum source of NGC 4631 is located at the eastern edge of the central region near a giant HII region complex CM67 (Crillon and Monnet 1969). The magnetic field orientation going out from the central region and especially from the region CM67 as well as the prominent north eastern low frequency radio spur (cf. Hummel et al. 1991) indicate a close connection between the synchrotron emission of the radio halo of NGC 4631 and star forming regions/CM67 in the disk (Golla and Hummel, in preparation). Probably cosmic rays from star forming regions in the disk propagate along the magnetic field Unes into the halo.
