Abstract: This paper describes a 50 MHz system being developed for GMRT to provide imaging capability in the frequency range 30−90 MHz. Due to its larger collecting area and higher antenna efficiency, the low-frequency GMRT system will be several times more sensitive than the present 74 MHz VLA system and is likely to remain a competitive instrument in this frequency band. In the first phase of this project, receiver systems consisting of V-dipole feeds and front-ends have been installed on four of the thirty GMRT antennas. Test observations were carried out on a number of bright 3CR sources. The initial results are encouraging. This paper will also describe results of simultaneous observations carried out using the existing GMRT correlator, the new GMRT software correlator and a system employing digitization and direct recording of signals at two antenna bases.
