Signals were bounced from here, via a man-made satellite, to Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Goldstone, California. Near the foreground is the unique 'horn-reflector' antenna developed by Bell Laboratories as a receiver for the satellite communications system. The transmitter, a 60-foot dish, is shown in the rear.
