dc.description.abstract The Jansky Very Large Array was used to observe the microquasar SS433 throughout the summer of 2011, using a range of frequencies between 4.5 and 8 GHz. The data were obtained during six different time epochs. We present total intensity and polarization images of the source made from the different epochs, and discuss how the source has evolved as a function of both time and frequency. We also present the initial results of using the technique of Faraday rotation measure synthesis to find the intrinsic source polarization angles. Future work will include watching different components of the source evolve as a function of time. en_US
