A new propagation campaign in tropical areas: The Ka-band propagation experiment over India with the GSAT-4 satellite

An opportunity has been proposed recently by the Space Applications Center (SAC) of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to carry out a propagation experiment at Ka-band over India. To this purpose, the GSAT-4 satellite will board two propagation beacons at 20.2 GHz and 30.5 GHz in linear polarization. The objective of this paper is to present the… (More)
