Model Description

During the inspiral of a NS-BH merger, the magnetic field lines of the NS may thread around the BH event horizon in a way similar to a battery powering a circuit, and produce a single FRB.

Observational Constraints

The FRB emission would have a precursor burst and a double peak.
