Abstract

We have mapped the broad line radio galaxy 3C390.3 at 1.3, 6, and 18 cm wavelengths with resolutions ranging from 0.2 to 2.7 mas. Our new 6 cm image is consistent with a stationary bright region located 4 to 5 mas from the core and motion of the other features with apparent velocities of 0.4 to 0.7 mas/yr. Our high resolution 1.3 cm image indicates that the ‘jet’ breaks up into 5 or more distinct features.
