A high resolution 38 MHz radio survey has been performed at MRAO in Cambridge and the results are currently in press. The survey was extremely successful despite being performed on a low budget and on a restrictive site. The design and results of this telescope must be considered when making comparisons between proposed ground-based and space-based high performance low frequency telescopes.
