Abstract:

This report describes the facilities at Rome and Trinidad which are used to perform communication experiments using the Echo type satellites. These facilities have undergone many modifications over the past five years and this report describes the facility as it presently exists. The Rome and Trinidad facilities provide a duplex communication link when used with passive satellites. The communication for this link is accomplished at S band while tracking at Trinidad is dependent upon a 427 mc radar set. There have been some unique developments in providing this capability with work continuing on a high power dual frequency feed. The Trinidad facility will be closed down by 30 June 1965 but the Floyd facility will be retained for future work.
