-Above, ground control to tower [[WiFi]] antennas, circularly polarized patch antennas for the rocket, and high-gain directional antenna for ATV and ARRL 802.11b communications to the rocket in flight.
-**CURRENT STATUS**: Our communications systems and version 3 linearly polarized 1.3, 1.5, and 2.4 GHz cylindrical patch antennas were a stunning success for the launch of LV2 on August 20th, 2005. But the [[loss_of_LV2|/news/2005-08-20]] due to a failed gun powder charge put us back several years since we're "refactoring" our airframe and avionics. But now, we're ramping back up and rebuilding our communications systems for LV2c.
