Abstract: We present here the first results of a 22 cm survey of the Shapley Concentration core. The observations were carried out with the Australia Telescope Compact Array. Our radio observations completely and uniformely cover the A3558 complex, allowing a thorough multifrequency study, by comparison of our results with the available optical spectroscopic and X--ray data of the whole chain. We will present here some statistical results of our survey and compare them with the information on the dynamics of the chain and on the properties of the intracluster gas. Attention will also be devoted to the extended radio galaxies found in our survey.
