The effect of regular magnetic fields on the evolution of galaxies and clusters is best studied through observation of polarised, low frequency synchrotron emission. Recently, a full-polar mode has come online at the GMRT . The talk will cover the calibration of GMRT polarimetric observations, so that the instrument can now be used for Rotation Measure synthesis – an essential technique for lines of sight where the emitting and Faraday rotating regions are mixed.
