AbstractDuring the month of February 1972 a group of ten Hughes Aircraft Company and two Western Union International engineers had the fortunate opportunity to travel to the People’s Republic of China to install and operate the satellite earth station used in support of President Nixon’s historic visit. Hughes Aircraft Company, Space and Communications Group was under contract to Western Union International, who in turn held the contract to provide the satellite communications equipment utilized in Peking. The team of Hughes and WUI had provided a similar communications facility to the Shah of Iran during the ceremonies marking the 2500th Anniversary of the Persian Empire in October of 1971.
