9 pages (8.5 x 11 format)

The Jamesburg Earth Station (JES) is located in Cachagua, eleven miles east of Carmel Valley Village. In operation from 1969 to1990 it brought significant historical TV events to the world such as the Apollo 11 moon landing, Elvis Presley’s Blue Hawaii concert (the first ever televised concert), and President Richard Nixon’s historic meeting with Mao Zedong. This book provides a rare glimpse into how and why Carmel Valley’s Jamesburg Earth Station was built and how it played a part in the worldwide telecommunications network.
