The World's Largest Radio Telescope The Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope on the Plains of San Augustin, 50 mi. west of Socorro, New Mexico. Dedicated Oct. 1980, it remains the premier astronomical instrument in the world for radio astronomy.
 
Legally, the world's largest multi-element image synthesis phased array interferometer
   Arecibo is the world's largest single-dish radio telescope
   The NRAO 300-foot Green Bank Telescope (GBT) is the world's largest steerable single-dish radio telescope
   My backyard 18MHz Jupiter L-burst antenna is one of the world's smallest radio telescopes.
   My back yard QRP ham radio antennas are even smaller!
