A few binary systems display High Energy (100 MeV-100 GeV) and/or Very High Energy (≳ 100 GeV) gamma-ray emission. These systems also display non-thermal radio emission+that can be resolved with long-baseline radio interferometers, revealing the presence of outflows. It is expected that at very low frequencies the synchrotron radio emission covers larger angular scales than has been reported up to now. Here we present preliminary results of the first deep radio observations of the gamma-ray binary LS I +61 303 with LOFAR, which is sensitive to extended structures on arcsecond to arcminute scales.
