A Herschel transmitter is a Herschel-to-glider converter that produces two gliders on parallel tracks that can be used as input to a Herschel receiver. If the gliders are far enough apart, a suitably-oriented mirror image of the receiver will also work: the first glider triggers the receiver and the second glider deletes the extra beehive.
The image to the right shows a stable Herschel transmitter found by Paul Callahan in May 1997. The larger but more Spartan mirrored dock is sometimes substituted for the carrier siamese dock, because a mirrored dock is easier to construct with a slow salvo.
