In order to determine the size of the decametric sources, the technique of long baseline radio interferometry is being employed. The University of Florida at Gainesville is a pioneer in this field. In 1964, T. D. Carr introduced the procedure of recording the signals received at each end of an interferometer on magnetic tape and comparing the re-corded signals at a later time. This eliminated the necessity for transmission lines over the length of the baseline, allowing greater separation to attain higher resolution.
