Limits of visibility

The east and west limits of geostationary are visible from any given Earth station.

Limits of visibility:

 

The east and west limits of geostationary are visible from any given Earth station. These limits are set by the geographic coordinates of the Earth station and antenna elevation.

 

The lowest elevation is zero (in theory) but in practice, to avoid reception of excess noise from Earth. Some finite minimum value of elevation is issued. The earth station can see a satellite over a geostationary arc bounded by +- (81.30) about the earth station‟s longitude.
