The Pulsar Monitoring in Argentina (PuMA) collaboration between IAR and RIT has been observing southern pulsars with high cadence using the two restored IAR antennas in the L-Band (1400MHz).

A program to observe transient phenomena, such as magnetars and glitching pulsars as well as precise timing of millisecond pulsars has been carried out since 2017. Access to lower frequency bands, where most of the pulsars are brighter, allow us to reach additional pulsars currently buried in the interference noise. For instance, we display two dozen glitching pulsars that could be easily observable by MIA in the 400MHz band. We also discuss the challenges and importance of pulsar timing at low frequencies.
