Comparison between the rotation measure spread function of our data (solid line) and that of Heald et al. (2009; dashed line). The more continuous frequency coverage of our Jansky VLA data not only provides an improved resolution in Faraday depth space, it also significantly suppresses the amplitude of the first side-lobe from ~78% down to <35%.
