Pulsars are known to emit non-thermal radio emission that is generally a power-law function of frequency. In some cases, a turnover is seen at frequencies around 100 MHz. Kijak et al. have reported the presence of a new class of ‘Gigahertz Peaked Spectrum’ (GPS) pulsars that show spectral turnovers at frequencies around 1 GHz. We apply a model based on free–free thermal absorption to explain these turnovers in terms of surrounding material such as the dense environments found in H
