Hanover CS was an earth station with two large parabolic satellite downlink antennas, and was built about ½ mile to the south of the Hanover R station, down in a ravine. The steep walls of the ravine provided a natural barrier to interfering signals from other 4 GHz microwave stations in the general area. A 22-tube L-type coaxial cable brought the IF inputs and outputs from the 11 GHz equipment at the Hanover R tower to the earth station's receivers and transmitters through a 100A switch.
For additional information, see the Hanover CS, IL - Lee, IL route description.
The link was brought on line around 1974, and retired in 1986. The earth station and the 11 GHz link tower at Hanover R were dismantled around 1994.
