The SETI Institute, starting in 2023, will use data collected by the Very Large Array in New Mexico in search of extraterrestrial technosignatures. This data will be collected by the SETI Institute, as the VLA goes about its usual radio astronomy observations. The SETI Institute's receivers will, in effect, be riding piggyback . This will enable the SETI search of millions of stars, in some cases, at so far untried wavelengths.

The VLA is a cluster of 27 radio dishes, each 25 meters in diameter, This gives the same signal strength as a single dish, 130 meters in diameter. The frequency range covered will be 230 MegaHertz to 50 GigaHertz.

Please see the linked article, below, for further details.
