The solar type J radio burst is a variant of type III bursts, which are a probe for understanding solar energetic electrons and local electron density. This study investigates a type J burst event on 2017 September 9. We have combined the data from the extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) imaging and the EUV Imaging Spectrometer (EIS) to analyze the event. Within 4 minutes several type J bursts with similar morphology occur. Two of them, with clear fundamental and second harmonic bands, are studied in detail. We find a delay of 2 ± 0.5 s between their different harmonic bands. During type J bursts, only one coronal loop brightens significantly at its northern footpoint, in correlation with the continuous injection of erupting jets into the loop. The EUV intensity of the brightening footpoint is correlated with the radio flux at 245 and 410 MHz, with correlation coefficients of 0.2 and 0.4, respectively. These observations suggest that the type J bursts should originate from this coronal loop. By analyzing the electron number density distribution along the coronal loop diagnosed from the EIS data and the time evolution of the plasma frequency calculated from the type J burst, we determine that the velocities of the energetic electrons exciting the two type Js are 0.10 ± 0.02c and 0.12 ± 0.02c. Our results confirm previous studies on type J bursts.
