Dear Iridium observers,

On the Internet (Lloyd Wood's information page, http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/)
I found a discription (in Spanish) of the main industries that are involved
in the Iridium satellites.
The Main Mission Antennas are built by Raytheon Corporation. They basicly
consist of an aluminium plate, sized 86 x 188 x 4 cm. Mounted onto this are
106 radiation elements.
