The DAM, located at longitude 2 degrees east, latitude 47 north, operating in the 10-80 MHz frequency range, consists in two phased antenna arrays in opposite senses of circular polarisation with a 4000 m2 effective aperture each, and a set of receivers allowing for wide band, high resolution and sensitive spectroscopy of Jovian and solar radio emissions. Each array includes 72 antenna.
