Posted by Marc Drazin on 19 January 2018 09:23 AM

Satellite: Galaxy 19 – 97° West

Transponder: 19

Downlink Polarity: Vertical

Frequency: 4080 MHz.

L-Band: 1070 MHz.

Modulation: DVS-S2 8PSK

Symbol Rate: 30.000 Ms/S

FEC: 5/6

Roll Off: .20

Pilots: None (Off)


Recommended RF levels for reliable delivery:

Receiver Signal Range = -25 dBm to -65 dBm (signals greater than -25 dBm should be padded to -40 dBm. Signals lower than -55 dBm should be increased to at least -40 dBm)

TARGET Range for best internal AGC operation = between -35 and -45 dBm

TARGET Eb/No = greater than 7.5 dB

TARGET Eb/No Margin = greater than 3.0 dB
