I was visiting the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal today and noticed this (http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/alsj/ApolloTV-Acrobat5.pdf) article about the Apollo TV transmissions by Bill Wood (IIRC he worked at Goldstone). It also has a good explaination of the poor quality of the TV transmission of Apollo 11. It shows the actual transmission received in Australia and then the US broadcast version. A world of difference.

Enjoy

BTW the article is 12Mb is pdf format, but it does have numerous color photos.
