{Collins} Re: Collins didn't just make ham radio



When NASA switched over from using VHF for its satellites up and down 
links, Collins was selected to design and supply entire new S-band 
2.1-2.3GHz) systems.   This included I believe a 20Kw uplink 
transmitter.  When you saw the gear, it just had that Collins look. 
These were deployed at all the NASA sites. These sites had 9 and 26 
meter dishes.

 I am not sure about the three Deep Space Network sites
