Description: 

antenna; While systems engineers are evaluating Comstar service, scientists are using the satellite system for other purposes. High-frequency signals beamed to this antenna from Comstar satellites enabled Bell Labs to study signal attenuation caused by atmospheric conditions. Such research may prove useful for design of future satellite transmission systems.
