Deep Impact Receiving System

Here is a block diagram, system temperature calculation, and pictures of the antenna, receivers, HP Spectrum Analyzer, and the SpectraCyber I gas spectrometer working in tandem to receive the signals in hydrogen light from Tempel 1 and the NASA/JPL/UMD Deep Impactor vehicle collision.
