The digital dish is an 11 foot, former 'satelite dish', re-fitted by the NFO staff to 920 MHz FSK digital packet radio. The gain is greater than 22db. The design is taken from the formerly local Mimbres Indians, circ. 1050, and depicts the 1068 apparition of Halleys Comet. The design was painted by Marilyn Gendron of the Mimbres Hot Springs ranch.
