CODALEMA is one of the experiments devoted to the detection of ultra high energy cosmic rays by the radio method. So far, the device, installed at the radio-observatory of Nançay (France), has used in coincidence a ground particle detector array and an antenna array, connected by cable to a central acquisition room, for sampling a surface of 0.25 km2. Since the early 2011, the experience is the subject of a major evolution with the addition, all around the original radio setup, of a new radio network made of 60 autonomous radiodetection stations, spread over an area of 1.5 km2. This new configuration should allow both to deepen the interpretation of results and serve as a testbed for the mastery of this technology in the context of possible large-scale deployments. The main characteristics of this new mode of operation will be presented in the light of recent results obtained by the conventional network CODALEMA.
