I love that damn movie. I have a copy of it queued up right now. I did loads of satellite work back in the late 70 and 80s, and all that test equipment in the background at Parkes just brings back memories.

No, I wasn't a rocket scientist. I was a technician helping engineers do research. So I had a lot of hands on with that sort of old analog gear. Every now and then I see something for sale in one of the local "old equipment surplus shops," and I have HAM radio friends that have shacks full of the stuff.
