How to make inclinometer.
Inclined orbit operation.
Focal length of parabola.
Sub reflector adjustment.
Use rear side struts.
VSAT antenna anti-icing.
Satellite link budget.
Dish interference: Site shielding.
Correcting VSAT dish distortion.
Antenna panel alignment.
Satellite beam design.
Antenna beamwidth calculator
Enter the diameter of your parabolic dish in m (metres) and the operating frequency in GHz (Gigahertz)
A typical VSAT is 1.2m diameter and transmits at 14 - 14.5 GHz
The calculation results are:
The results are increasingly approximate beyond the -3 dB contour. The first null may appear at an angle off the boresight similar the the -3 dB full beamwidth.
