The Radôme

A space station amid the Breton moors

It was here in Pleumeur-Bodou, in the heart of the Pink Granite Coast, that France erected a gigantic horn antenna weighing 340 tons, housed inside the “Radôme”, an enormous 50m-high sphere.

On 11 July 1962, the antenna received the very first televised images to be beamed live from the United States. This was a world first which marked the birth of worldwide satellite broadcasting and paved the way for space telecommunications.
