Problem Solving: (Box all final answers.) 1. Calculate the free space spreading loss to a geostationary satellite at 6105 MHz when the elevation angle is 23°. 2. The moon orbits the earth with a period of approximately 28 days. How far away is it? 3. Calculate the radius of orbit for an earth satellite in a geosynchronous orbit, where the earth's rotational period is 86,164 seconds. 4. A satellite in earth orbit passes through its perigee point at an altitude of 200 km above the earth's surface and at a velocity of 7,850 m/s. Calculate the apogee altitude of the satellite and the eccentricity of the orbit. 5. An uplink transmitter operates at 6GHz with a transmitter power of 10kW and an antenna gain of 50 dBi. The receiver on the geostationary satellite has an antenna gain of 40 dBi. The elevation angle to the satellite from the ground station is 45°. What is the received signal strength at the satellite?
