Type III radio bursts observations with Polish LOFAR station in Baldy

We present a few examples of the type III solar radio bursts observed with LOFAR (LOw-Frequency Array) station in Baldy, located in Poland. Observations cover the period from October 2016 until December 2018. This station was used in the single mode and recorded the solar dynamic spectra in the frequency range from 10 MHz up to 240 MHz. Unique features of these observations conducted by the single station are: the high frequency resolution (0.39 MHz), high sensitivity, and also the high frequency bandwidth. The first observations in Baldy indicate that the LOFAR telescope is well suited for solar research at low frequencies. The observations from LOFAR in conjunction with other wavelengths to determine various events occurring on the Sun can give additional interesting results. We expect that observations with LOFAR telescope will contribute to a better understanding of the mechanism responsible for the type III radio bursts generation.
