GEETEE is a low frequency radiotelescope operating at MHz. It is situated near Gauribidanur, km from Bangalore, India. The antenna system is a shaped array with dipoles, in the km long array and 360 in the km long array. It's collecting area in the correlation mode is 18,000 Sq m and has a resolution of . The array consists of four rows of dipoles in the direction, with dipoles in each row. The array consists of rows in the direction with four dipoles each placed in the direction.
A multibeam-forming receiver has been built for to obtain long periods of interference free observation over as large a patch of sky as possible in one day. A short observing time for a wide field survey at low frequencies minimises the effects of the ionosphere. For multibeam operation a single row of is used in the meridian transit mode. Single row was chosen to maximise the coverage in declination. A single beam in the direction was considered sufficient, as the images are confusion limited. outputs of the array are transmitted to the observatory in 23 open-wire transmission lines using time division multiplexing. In the observatory building, the signals from the EW and arrays are down-converted to an intermediate frequency of MHz. Then each of the array output is correlated with the array output using one-bit correlators. This gives visibilities sampled at m intervals along the NS direction. The Fourier transform of these visibilities gives multiple beams in the direction covering a span of of Zenith angle along the meridian. A two dimensional image of the sky is obtained by stacking successive scans across the meridian.
