Abstract: The Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope will be equipped with new front ends. These front ends will cover 8 frequency bands in the range from 250 MHz to 8.6 GHz. For the frequency bands above 1.2 GHz the sensitivity of the instrument will be drastically improved. Two independent local oscillator systems make it possible to observe in two frequency bands simultaneously.
