Here you can find some useful tools, which are intended to help you understand the satellite technology.

Moreover you can find here a clearly arranged table with EIRP values for the Ku band, which is intended to help you with the decision of which dish size to buy.

Finally I have programmed a calculator which dependent on your location, will compute some necessary angle values for your antenna adjustment.

The dictionary which explains the most important terms of the satellite technology is available only in german!!!
