In several papers the thermal conduction front formed between hot and cold plasmas was studied (Brown et al. 1979, McKean et al 1990, Arber & Melnikov 2009). Karlický (2015) has studied the thermal front using a 3-D particle-in-cell electromagnetic code and found that the thermal front can produce radio emission. Here we present a very rare radio burst which we interpreted as generated by the thermal conduction front formed in front of the falling EUV blob.

Observations
Figure 1 shows the 800 – 2000 MHz radio spectrum of the M3.7 flare observed on 2015-Nov-04 by the Ondřejov radiospectrograph. In this radio spectrum a very rare slowly positively drifting burst (SPDB) can be seen. It started at 1300 MHz at 13:40:24 UT and drifted towards higher frequencies with frequency drift of about 115 MHz s-1. The SPDB was observed during the impulsive phase of the flare, close to the maximum peak of GOES soft X-rays derivatives. We used data from several instruments (SDO/AIA, Hinode/XRT, IRIS, MSDP/Bialkow). We analysed these to find any observable EUV signatures associated with the SPDB. Figure 2 ...
