Satellite Palapa-D

The coverage

The satellite was designed to meet aggressive demands in the broadcast and data communications requirements with the following features:

  • Linearized TWTA to carry more carriers per transponder which means lower cost per link for data communication
  • Higher power TWTA means higher EIRP and that’s the best for smaller reception (TVRO) dish size. This benefits TV viewers and DTH operators in shipping and installing the dish.
  • ALC (automatic level control) to compensate rain attenuation in uplink site so that transmission quality will be maintained in the pre-set value

The coverage itself was designed to cover 4 billion popullation in the Asia Pacific Region ASIA Beam:
