Jamesburg Earth Station, 1969

Dedication ceremony in 1969 at the Jamesburg Earth Station.  The 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. The antenna, taller than a 10-story building, is located in the Upper Carmel Valley near Cachagua.  (Monterey County Herald Archives)

  1. In Carmel Valley real estate every home sale includes a "due diligence"
    phase where all this documentation is provided for the buyer to review
    and approve. Don't let some unknown and costly problem arise and jeopardize
    the sale. By taking this easy step, you can "tighten up" the buyers time
    periods and removal of contingencies deadlines. Let's keep those buyers
    moving in the right direction, towards the close of escrow!
