Abstract: Since autumn 2008 an L-band 7-Feed-Array has been operated for astronomical science at the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg. This receiver is being used to perform an unbiased, fully sampled H I survey of the whole northern hemisphere, observing both the galactic and extragalactic sky in parallel—the Effelsberg-Bonn H I survey (EBHIS). We present first results based on the Milky Way data. To date two larger coherent regions have been mapped, each covering about 2000 deg2. One of these fields covers the northern part of the high-velocity cloud complex GCN. With the better angular resolution of the EBHIS we resolve the previously detected clouds into isolated compact clumps and find a linewidth–vlsr relation giving hints on an interaction of accreting material with the Milky Way halo.
