On Saturday, April 19, 1997, JPL will partner with AlliedSignal Corporation to host an Open House at the Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex. No sign up, or registration is required. This event is open to the public. At the Goldstone Complex Guard Gate, visitors will be directed to parking areas, and transportation to antenna sites will be by bus. First stop will be at the Mars site to see the 70-meter antenna and view the mission operations room. Safety regulations do not permit public access to the antenna pedestal or dish. Next, the bus will drive visitors to the Apollo site. Here there will be public access to the pedestal of one of the new 34-meter Beam Wave Guide antennas. JPL planetary missions will also have exhibits in this area. The bus then returns guests to the main Echo site for other displays, exhibits, demonstrations, and a video screening. The cafeteria will be serving light meals and drinks, and souvenirs will be available for purchase. During the Open House a special event will be staged to dedicate the three new 34-meter antennas at the Apollo site. Representatives from the contracting companies who erected the antennas will be joined by members of JPL's management in a short ceremony of official dedication to be held at 1:00 p.m..
