Comment on Arthur (Antenna No 1), Goonhilly

Goonhilly was Britain's entry into the brave new world of satellite communications, one of the first satcoms earth station sites in the world, and was the springboard for the UK's pre-eminent position as the communications hub of the world -- all started by Goonhilly Antenna No 1 in the 1960s.
