Convair proposal to fit a 15ft Parabolic antenna to the Wet-Lab version of Skylab, looks like it might be simple to implement when/if we get round to Skylab.

I cannot remember if this was linked earlier, but this might make an interesting addon.

Quote
In keeping with the lunar mission nomenclature proposed in Bellcomm’s January 1968 Lunar Exploration Program Plan, Yates designated the mission Lunar Landing Mission-3 (LLM-3). An “early Apollo” mission, LLM-3 would include a 35-hour stay on the moon, three three-hour moonwalks by two astronauts, and surface exploration on foot no farther than one kilometer from the LM.

...

Yates selected as his LLM-3 landing site an area photographed by the Lunar Orbiter III spacecraft between February and October 1967. Located at 36° west, 3° south, it lay in Oceanus Procellarum directly south of the prominent ray crater Kepler. Specifically, he aimed the LLM-3 LM at a half-kilometer-wide mare ridge (image at top of post) with a fresh, 200-meter-wide crater on top.

It has been a long time since I last posted. However some very interesting documentation has come to light about the Lunar Mapping & Survey System courtesy of the NRO:

Project UPWARD (1964 - 1967)

http://www.nro.gov/foia/declass/UPWARD.html

There are also four articles (to date) on the Space Review website covering the program

Space Review: Black Apollo (29/11/10)

http://www.thespacereview.com/article/1734/1

Space Review: Apollo: secrets and whispers (06/12/10)

http://www.thespacereview.com/article/1737/1

Space Review: Out of the black (11/06/12)

http://www.thespacereview.com/article/2100/1

Space Review: Project UPWARD: hauling the NRO’s GAMBIT to the Moon (15/09/2014)

http://thespacereview.com/article/2596/1

From the last article is an artists impression of the earliest version of the UPWARD installation, this might be easily implementable as an alternative to the existing SIM bay:
