We carried out a multi-frequency cross-correlation analysis of the blazar PKS 1424-418 with data collected by Fermi-LAT and the HartRAO 26m radio telescope between 2012 September 10th and 2013 September 8th during its flaring state. Using the z-transformed discrete cross-correlation function from Alexander (1997), we examined the data for time lags. Our results confirmed the existence of a significant cross-correlation between the gamma-ray and the radio data, with the radio events being delayed relative to the gamma-ray events.
