An interesting CQ magazine article on Apollo communications systems on the moon. 1969 CQ Magazine Article
On May 5, 1961, Naval test pilot Alan Shepard became the first American to travel into space during a 15-minute sub-orbital flight that carried him to an altitude of 116 miles. He made his second space flight 10 years later in 1971 on Apollo 14, piloting America’s third successful lunar landing mission. He is remembered for hitting two golf balls across the surface of the moon. Shepard earned a B.S. degree from the United States Naval Academy before the school’s curricula was officially recognized as an engineering degree. (Source: Wikipedia)
