Chapter 3. Satellite TV

Satellite distribution is the thing that really has made the difference when it comes to the development of the TV medium. In this chapter I have tried to tell the history of the geostationary TV satellites starting with Arthur C. Clarke’s famous article in the October 1945 edition of Wireless World. How to launch a satellite? What are the launcher alternatives? How is the coverage areas of the satellites designed? This chapter's intent is to tell all that you need to know about space technology to get on with satellite television.

Chapter 3 contains 31 illustrations.



Hughes HS 376 is the most common spin stabilized satellite platform.
