PRISM Manual Operation Training
This is a training for newcomers of the groundstation subsystem. They learned how to catch the signal with a Yagi antenna manually. Usually, GMS(Groundstation Management Service) provides us the way to control the devices of the groundstation automatically. The result is ... yes, we could hear the powerful voice from HITOMI!
