The Hellenic Open University Cosmic Ray Telescope consists of three autonomous stations installed at the University Campus in the city of Patras. Each station comprises three large (≈ 1 m2) plastic scintillators and one or more Codalema type RF antennas detecting Extensive Air Showers (EAS), originating from primary particles with energy greater than 10 TeV. The operation and the performance of the Telescope is presented briefly, emphasising the educational activities foreseen in the framework of the HEllenic LYceum Cosmic Observatories Network (HELYCON).
