    The efficient utilization of the synchronous orbit for satellite communications is highly dependent on the spacing between satellites. This spacing in turn is a function of several parameters, one of which is the performance of the earth station antennas which will be using that satellite. In particular, the FCC has adopted the formula that the allowable sidelobe levels from measured patterns of a... View full abstract»

    In this paper, it is shown that there exists a zero-cross-polarization mode through rain in which no cross polarization will be induced when orthogonally polarized signals are transmitted. This mode is derived based on a matrix model of the rain-induced depolarization effect for the linear case suggested by Chu [12]. It is also assumed that when the canting angles O of the raindrops are treated as... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we evaluate the weighted and unweighted signal-to-noise ratio of a camera-head signal which is transmitted by a fiber-optic system using pulse-frequency modulation (PFM). We take into account the camera noise characteristic determined by the camera preamplifier (FET-feedback type), the thermal and shot noise of the avalanche photodiode, and the thermal noise of the following preampl...

    Combining an advanced UHF-TV antenna with a balanced-input ultralow-noise preamplifier permits over-the-air reception of UHF-TV programs in areas where there were no watchable pictures available previously. View full abstract»

    The accuracies of a VU meter and a peak-program (PPG) meter (EBU meter) for measuring program levels are examined by means of dual strip-chart recordings of various types of program material. It is shown that the VU-meter measurements are highly dependent on the program material, while the PPG meter does not suffer this shortcoming. The use of a PPG meter results in a program volume that is 4-5 dB... View full abstract»
