04-03-2019 The Pleumeur-Bodou Satellite Communications Center

The Pleumeur-Bodou satellite telecommunication center is a terrestrial satellite telecommunication station who realized the first satellite television transmission between France and the United States in 1962. The Radome (radar and dome contraction) of Pleumeur-Bodou and its Cornet antenna will remain in activity until the beginning of the 80’s. Today they are classified historical monuments and are part of the "Cité des télécoms", a museum dedicated to telecommunications. The Pleumeur-Bodou site was chosen because of its clear horizon, the nature of its soil and the proximity of CNET (National Center for Telecommunications Studies) which was located in Lannion.
