Description

I present results studying the periodic variations in PSR B1828-11 and demonstrate that the evidence is in favour of a precession interpretation over the recent claims that this pulsar is undergoing magnetospheric switching. Furthermore, I will establish that the periodicity is changing and discuss the consequence that this has for both models.
