We find an unusual arrangement of diffuse radio emission in the center and periphery of the cluster, as well as several radio galaxies with head-tail emission. A patch of peripheral emission resembles a radio relic, and central emission resembles a radio halo. Reanalysis of archival XMM-Newton X-ray data shows that PLCK G004.5-19.5 is disturbed, which has a known correlation with the existence of radio relics and halos. Given that the number of known radio halos and radio relics at z>0.5 is very limited, PLCK G004.5-19.5 is an important addition to understanding merger-related particle acceleration at higher redshifts. Description: We carried out a set of observations on PLCK G004.5-19.5 using the GMRT at 150MHz, 325MHz (PI: A. Stroe, Project: 27_051), and 610MHz (PI: C. Sifon, Project: 25_036) with total times on source of 445min., 390min., and 798min. We performed 15 min. observations on flux calibrators 3C 48 and 3C 286 at the start and end of the observation session Objects: ----------------------------------------------------------------- RA (2000) DE Designation(s) ----------------------------------------------------------------- 19 16 54 -33 30.5 PLCK G004.5-19.5 = PLCKESZ G004.5-19.5 ----------------------------------------------------------------- File Summary:
