The Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD) is an attempt to use new satellite technology and low-cost ground terminals to deliver community service broadcast to rural areas. Since community involvement was one of the projects highest priorities, clear communication between local, state, national, and international agencies was imperative. The public information plan entailed: (1) designing and scheduling information dissemination at all levels; (2) filling requests for information about the project; (3) designing information for all STD audiences; (4) coordinating STD activities with other health, education, telecommunications agencies; (5) developing brochures, displays, and media shows; (6) striving for indepth coverage of STD activities in various media; and (7) serving as STD spokesman at various conventions and symposia. This information service not only facilitated leaders' ability to make decisions, it also increased participation at the local level. The appendixes to this document include lists of: materials used, external presentations made, appearances made by the mobile unit, special satellite presentations, articles published, press conferences, and news releases.
