HSK by Bill Wood Oct 1980

Honeysuckle Creek in October 1980.

This photo was taken by Bill Wood (ex-Goldstone) on a Deep Space Network “flying clock trip” to provide a better time standard at all three DSN complexes.

Mike Dinn writes, “The small dish [on the right hand side of the microwave tower] is pointing at the coll tower. In the later/last days, I think comms for ORR and HSK went via the coll tower and a microwave link to Black Mountain. And towards the end, the last function at HSK was to keep a generator going to provide power to the coll tower for this.”
