The coastal OTH-Radar “Telets” (Cyrillic: «Телец», taurus) is an over-the-horizon (SW) radar station operating in the HF-band with low transmission power for detecting ships at a distance of up to 250 kilometers. The radar was developed to monitor the situation in the 200-mile coastal economic zone. The station uses the principle of horizontal localization by means of a surface wave (propagation with help of diffraction).
The experimental over-the-horizon radar station “Telets” was built in 1999 in Kamchatka (52°57'23.4" N 158°48'08.6" E).
