Re: Satellite questions

Hope some one more astute than myself is able to provide your answers. One
point I wanted to make is that C+No/No (C/N) is not the same as Eb/No. They
are related in that your Eb/No generally will decrease as your C/N but can
also decrease with no change in C/N. This would occur with various types of
interference, such as sweeping carriers passing thru your occuppied
frequency or transponder noise floor anomalies. Also, various coding
methods are able to improve your ability to recover data with lower Eb/No
and, consequently, lower C+No/No. 

Wishing you great success with your presentation. 73
