Its hotspots are embedded in its N and S lobes rather than at the extremities (Fosbury et al. 1998), which is a common morphology for sources close to the FRI/FRII border (Capetti, Fanti & Parma 1995).

The situation became more complicated with the detection of radio emission from a knot lying close to the HIC but suf´Čüciently separated to be at a position angle of about 34 deg from the core (Fosbury et al. 1998).
