If a system of communications satellites is uncontrolled after launching, service interruptions are inevitable. The amount of interruption depends on the number of satellites, their altitude, the orbit inclinations, the distance between ground stations, the acceptable signal-to-noise ratio, and other parameters. Various relations between these quantities are presented in tables and graphs, and are illustrated by examples.
