A crew from Texas helps install an 11-meter antenna operated by UAF's Alaska Satellite Facility at its location on West Ridge. Once fully operational, the dish will gather data from spacecraft about land surface, biosphere, atmosphere, oceans and outer space. It's one of several strategically placed antennas that can capture data from polar-orbiting satellites several times per day.
