J16021+3326: New Multi-Frequency Observations Of a Complex Source
We present multi-frequency Very Long Baseline Array observations of J16021+3326. These observations, along with variability data obtained from the Owens Valley Radio Observatory candidate gamma-ray blazar monitoring program, clearly indicate that this source is a blazar. The peculiar characteristic of this blazar, which daunted previous classification attempts, is that we appear to be observing down a precessing jet, the mean orientation of which is aligned with us almost exactly.
