 Welcome to Jamesburg Earth Station Minimize

The Jamesburg Earth Station in Cachagua Valley, California ( about 20 miles S.E of Monterey )

This facility went into service in 1969, just in time to carry the Moon landing live to the world. COMSAT owned and operated this high-capacity earth station, and provided all forms of overseas communications via satellite between the U.S. and points all around the Pacific Rim. This antenna, taller than a 10-story building, is located in the Upper Carmel Valley.

This facility was closed in 2002, and sold to a private investor. The new owner is cooperating with a group of Ham Radio operators to find a new use for the antenna, which may include  Radio Astronomy, educational or Deep Space applications.
