Enhanced sensitivity radio telescopes are producing dramatic results in a wide range of areas in astronomy. An international conference was held in Jodrell Bank, University of Manchester, to take stock of these advances. This timely volume presents the review articles presented by a host of world experts who gathered at this meeting. The articles show how high sensitivity is leading to a much improved understanding and breakthroughs in radio spectral line analysis, radio continuum observations of galaxies, cosmology, pulsars, and radio emission from stars. They also review the new and enhanced instruments now available. Finally, we are given a glimpse of the exciting telescopes being planned for the future. This volume provides graduate students and researchers with an up-to-date and wide-ranging review of the new and future research possible with high-sensitivity radio telescopes.It also reduces problems associated with the channels. Table 1 shows a ... To achieve this unprecedented performance in VLBI, we are modifying a HDTV- VCR (High- Definition TV Video Cassette Recorder) designed for broadcasting purposes.
