Calculating Link Budgets

Hi Bruce and the list,

As usual,  Satellite Handbook by Davidoff K2UBC has the answer. Chapter 8 page 12 has a fully worked out calculation on predicting signal levels. Its for a geostationary satellite with a 35W transponder and 70 users as follows:

"The average power allocated to each user is therefore 0.5 watt."

Hope this helps
