Radio Telescope

(telescope that operates in the radio frequency range of EMR)

A Radio Telescope is an instrument designed to sense Radio Electromagnetic Radiation at a distance, analogous to an "ordinary" telescope's ability to sense Visible Light at a distance. Generally they are Reflector Telescopes. A whole field of Radio Astronomy deals with the methods and results of the use of radio telescopes.
