Mission Control in Houston had a radio communication with the Apollo capsule as well as the Moon lander. A phone connection between the White House and Ground Control was established and connected to the radio transmitter and receiver. Of course the Deep Space Network with its three large antenna stations in Goldstone, Madrid and Canberra had to be used. To connect the overseas DSN stations to Houston, existing submarine communications cables and communications satellites like Early Bird were used.
Someone in Houston had to switch the transmitters and receivers for uplink when the President was speaking and for downlink when the astronauts were speaking. Of course the assistance of the personel at the DSN stations was needed to control the antenna direction and the power transmitters and high gain/low noise receivers at the dishes.
Continous speech connection between ground control and Apollo was necessary for the whole mission. Telephone connection to the White House was the easiest part.
It's called the Deep Space Network. They used really massive dish antennas [Google Photos].
Like the satellite TV antenna, but with a bowl as big as a football field!
Massive 34 meter and 70 meter antennas -- 100 footer and 200 footer dishes. Transmitting and receiving everything like sending space probe commands & receiving pictures and science data.
You can watch the Deep Space Network (DSN) transmissions at: eyes.nasa.gov...
Real-time animated status of all the big antennas that the Deep Space Network (DSN) is using. It's fascinating, hypnotizing and mesmerizing.
The dishes are still in use today. The exact same big antenna that handled the phone call & live TV broadcast from the moon, now is used in receiving pretty pictures from the Mars Rovers.
And not a single piece of evidence from you the moon landings were shot from a studio. Talking about the jumper. You don’t get kids want to be astronauts? You have to glaze over a basic truth to create innuendo? What kid with immigration doesn’t dream of exploring space? And a kid wearing a jumper is not any proof of a broadcast coming from a studio. It’s call innuendo, with no supporting evidence. Do you have actual evidence?

I used to be 100% sure we went to the moon.
Now I see how easily we are manipulated even though we know all bout CGI and hoax videos.
They could have faked it and showed it to us on TV and we would have believed it as long as they told us it was true.
I still think we went but doubts have crept in.
