This paper presents the results of a pilot study that provides an initial assessment of the applicability of reflected DBS signals for Earth remote sensing. The study uses off-the-self hardware and signals from a Dish Network satellite at 12 GHz (Ku-band) reflected from soil and water to characterize the power reflected from these surfaces. Power levels… CONTINUE READING
