It is studied the radio link between base lunar communication station and ground link station. Requirements for base lunar station antenna beamwidth are formulated depending on used tracking means. Based on analysis of existing ground link stations the frequency plan as well as data structure and rates were defined. Radio link calculation and basic characteristics selection were performed for equipment of base lunar station, ground link station and their antenna systems.
