Satellite link budget information : index page

This page is an index page linking to a variety of pages which will help you with calculations related to satellite communications links.

You are welcome to suggest ideas for more pages: eric@satsig.net

You might also submit anything that might help. I would particularly like someone to provide a write up about inter-modulation and the implications for BUC and transponder operating point.
