Determination of KU-band earth station antenna G/T using the moon as RF source

Abstract

The Moon has been successfully used as a calibrated source of RF emissions in determining the gain-to-noise-temperature ratios (G/Ts) of medium size C-band antennas. This method to determining G/T has recently been applied to Ku-band antennas as well, and the results have agreed well with independent measurements of gain and temperature. However, because of… (More)
