Abstract: AbstractWe present the results of a search for strong single radio pulses emitted by magnetars and for FRB signals in the fields of magnetars observed at the Parkes radio telescope within the NAPA project P626. Unsurprisingly, given the short total observing time, no extragalacic FRB signal was found up to a DM of 3000 pc/cm3. Two strong pulses dispersed at the DM of the known radio magnetar J1550–5418 where found, one occurring at the same time of an X-ray burst. This result is potentially interesting in the …
