31 October 2014: Earth Station modems and amplifiers upgraded

The San Diego earth station has new amplifiers for all antennas. The Ku-band system now sports a 150W amplifier, while the C-band systems are running 250W amplifiers. The old Comtech CDM-550 modems were replaced with Teledyne Q-Flex modems. As matching modems are installed on the vessels over the coming months, more efficient services will be enabled.
