They are normally used for broadcast feeds to and from television networks and local affiliate stations such as program feeds for network and syndicated programming, live shots , and backhauls , as well as being used for distance learning by schools and universities, business television BTV , Videoconferencing , and general commercial telecommunications. FSS satellites are also used to distribute national cable channels to cable television headends. Direct broadcast satellites generally operate in the upper portion of the microwave K u band.
Operating at lower frequency and lower power than DBS, FSS satellites require a much larger dish for reception 3 to 8 feet 1 to 2. They use linear polarization for each of the transponders' RF input and output as opposed to circular polarization used by DBS satellites , but this is a minor technical difference that users do not notice.
It was also used in its K u band form for the now-defunct Primestar satellite TV service. Some manufacturers have also introduced special antennas for mobile reception of DBS television. Using Global Positioning System GPS technology as a reference, these antennas automatically re-aim to the satellite no matter where or how the vehicle on which the antenna is mounted is situated. These mobile satellite antennas are popular with some recreational vehicle owners.
Satellite radio offers audio broadcast services in some countries, notably the United States. Mobile services allow listeners to roam a continent, listening to the same audio programming anywhere.
Communication Satellites, Fifth Edition
A satellite radio or subscription radio SR is a digital radio signal that is broadcast by a communications satellite, which covers a much wider geographical range than terrestrial radio signals. Satellite radio offers a meaningful alternative to ground-based radio services in some countries, notably the United States. Mobile services, such as SiriusXM, and Worldspace, allow listeners to roam across an entire continent, listening to the same audio programming anywhere they go.
Other services, such as Music Choice or Muzak's satellite-delivered content, require a fixed-location receiver and a dish antenna. In all cases, the antenna must have a clear view to the satellites. In areas where tall buildings, bridges, or even parking garages obscure the signal, repeaters can be placed to make the signal available to listeners.

Initially available for broadcast to stationary TV receivers, by popular mobile direct broadcast applications made their appearance with the arrival of two satellite radio systems in the United States: Sirius and XM Satellite Radio Holdings. Later they merged to become the conglomerate SiriusXM.
Radio services are usually provided by commercial ventures and are subscription-based. The various services are proprietary signals, requiring specialized hardware for decoding and playback. Providers usually carry a variety of news, weather, sports, and music channels, with the music channels generally being commercial-free.
In areas with a relatively high population density, it is easier and less expensive to reach the bulk of the population with terrestrial broadcasts. Amateur radio operators have access to amateur satellites, which have been designed specifically to carry amateur radio traffic.
Most such satellites operate as spaceborne repeaters , and are generally accessed by amateurs equipped with UHF or VHF radio equipment and highly directional antennas such as Yagis or dish antennas. Due to launch costs, most current amateur satellites are launched into fairly low Earth orbits, and are designed to deal with only a limited number of brief contacts at any given time.
Some satellites also provide data-forwarding services using the X. After the s, satellite communication technology has been used as a means to connect to the Internet via broadband data connections. This can be very useful for users who are located in remote areas, and cannot access a broadband connection, or require high availability of services. Communications satellites are used for military communications applications, such as Global Command and Control Systems. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
