On the Reference Mission spacecraft, we'll need 3
types of antennas to transmit data back to Earth and in space. There would
be one Ku-band antenna, which would be a steerable dish. The S-band
antennas (we would need a couple of them) would look like a couple of cans
on a T-shaped stalk:
----- boom __ boom ----- On the end is a
| |=========|__|=========| | round can, about 4"
----- || ----- diam X 8" long.
The VHF antennas would be a number of plain whips, scattered around the
external surface of the spacecraft.
