Extract from the subscription article mentioned in my previous email:

"Based in Kashgar, the westernmost corner of China, the system comprises four 35-metre (115-foot) diameter radio telescopes – three of them newly built – that form an array capable of recording signals equivalent to a single 66-metre radio telescope, China News Service reported"

The full article is actually available subscription-free at
