The strongest Pulsar in the northern hemisphere already detected in the past with self made software.

From the output of presto the trace of the pulsar signal is present in the entire frequency window while in the time window there is a deep scintillation (signal variation).

The presence of several RFI does not preclude to identify a well defined pulsar profile but deteriorates the pulsar definition.

A new observation, in a better noise condition, gives a much more gratifying result, the demonstration is in the chi-squared (X^2) parameter difference (33 1st observation, 240 the second),

Such a difference would be detrimental observing a weaker signal.
