CHANG-ES (Continuum Halos in Nearby Galaxies — an EVLA Survey) is a project to observe 35 nearby galaxies that are edge-on to the line of sight to focus on their radio halos and the disk-halo connection. Wide-band VLA observations at L-band (1.5 GHz) and C-band (6.0 GHz) have provided opportunities to study in-band spectral indices, and observations in all four Stokes parameters with Rotation Measure Synthesis has led to a new understanding of the structure of kpc-scale magnetic fields in disk galaxies. This talk will highlight some of the results of the project and look to the future, as newly completed S-band (3.0 GHz) observations have filled in the L-band to C-band gap and led to the widest contiguous frequency coverage yet seen for galaxies.
