The neverending story of CU Virginis -- Corrado Trigilio Colloquium
I will present recent results on modeling of the peculiar radio star CU Vir. During the observational campaigns in a sample of MCP stars, we serendipitous discovered an anomalous emission in CU Virginis. This emission has been ascribed as due to cyclotron maser instability above the pole of the star. The emission is persistent, as it has been observed over more than a decade, making the star as a sort of radio lighthouse, like a pulsar.
