Carnarvon Satellite Earth Station

The OTC Satellite Earth Station and the NASA Tracking Station at Carnarvon are often confused.

They were two separate installations, at either ends of Brown’s Range (though the OTC station was built at Carnarvon to support communications between the NASA station and the US).
