Terrestrial interference - TI:
Interference to C-Band satellite reception caused by nearby ground based microwave transmitting stations operating on or near the same frequencies as C-Band (3.7-4.2 GHz). TI can be reduced by using a deeper satellite dish or eliminated by using a
A transmission using earth-based transmitters.
Receives a transmission from an earth station, changes its frequency, and re-transmits it back to earth.
Television Receive Only - earth-based dishes, receivers and other equipment needed to receive satellite signals. Typically home C-Band satellite systems.
Transmission from earth to a satellite.
That portion of a signal that contains information that has been gathered from a camera or other sensing device designed to convert the appearance of physical objects into electrical signals. Also, that portion of a received signal that is designed to be fed to an image display device.
A type of signal scrambling in which the video signals are reversed in polarity. At the descrambling end, the received video signals are inverted once again, which results in a reproduction of the original unscrambled satellite broadcast.
Voltage Standing Wave Ratio - A measurement of mismatch in a cable, waveguide, or antenna system.
