AbstractThis paper describes the earth terminals in the Biomedical Communications Experiment via the Communications Technology Satellite (CTS). Important analyses performed in the selection of the earth terminal parameters are summarized. In particular, analyses of the link, inter-modulation products, and rain attenuation are presented as rationales for selecting ground transmitter power, receiver G/T, frequency spacing, that are optimum for TASO Grade 1 video quality, full-duplex color video/audio and an audio order-wire capability.
