Before the satellite bad com- pleted one global pass, it dem- onstrated its capability. It re- ceived radio communications signals and a television lest pat- tern from a ground station at Mojave, Calif, and beamed them back to both the Mo- jave station and one at Nutley, N.J. First television transmission between continents is scheduled Wednesday when high U.S. and Japanese officials arc sched- uled to exchange greetings via the satellite. President Johnson may be among the U.S. officials. Stations in seven countries on four continents planned to con- duct television, radio, telephone and teletype experiments with the satellite, which carries new electronic components designed to operate several years despite radiation and other space haz- ards. Relay 2 is the first of two big U.S. space efforts on tap this week. Echo 135-foot diame- ter balloon folded in the nose cone of a Thor-Agena B Booster scheduled to be shot into earth orbit Friday. The United States and the So- viet Union have agreed to try to bounce radio signals off Echo 2's shiny skin in their first joint experiments in talking via satel- lite. Echo 2 will be the world's largest and most widely visible satellite. A three-stage Delta rocket propelled the 184-pound Relay 2 upward from Cape Kennedy at p.m. The National Aeronau- tics and Space Administration announced the payload was in successful orbit after it com- pleted one hour hour circuit of the globe. The announcement said pre- liminary tracking data indicat- ed the satellite was in ari orbit very close to Ihe intended path, which ranged from miles to miles high. Earlier Tuesday, the Titan II rocket scheduled to boost a dum- my model of the two man Gemini space craft into orbit in March passed a successful ground firing test of its first and second stage motors. Thc two stages were locked side by side on a launching pad here and were fired in sequence for 30-sccond bursts after a five- hour countdown. Relay is one of several typos (See SATELLITE, Page 12)
