Dish nameplate from historical video


#1

Sorry I cannot resist sharing this - have been enjoying lots of youtube nasa, space and tracking historical videos and last night came across this nameplate for a dish:

That pushes several of my buttons - Apollo, S-Band, X-Y mount, Blaw Knox, Collins radio.
