Radio spectra of pulsars
The interpretation of the average spectra of pulsar radiation is given. It is shown that the observed relationship between the part of the pulsar kinetic energy, which is transformed into radio emission, and the basic period can explain the lack of very long period pulsars. The statistical relationships between the characteristic frequencies rule out effective operating of the Melrose's mechanism (ALAE) in pulsar magnetospheres. Two possible reasons of the high-frequency cut-off are analyzed. The values of the energy of emitting electrons are obtained (γ=ɛ/m e c 2∼103).
