K...

Ka

The frequency range from 18 to 31 GHz.

Kbps

Kilobits per second. Thousands of bits per second. For example: 14.4 Kbps means 14,000 bits per second.

Kelvin (K)

The temperature measurement scale used in the scientific community. Zero K represents absolute zero, and corresponds to minus 459 degrees Fahrenheit or minus 273 Celsius. Thermal noise characteristics of LNA's and LNB's are measured in Kelvins.

Keylist

A list of decoder addresses and decoder key in ordered pairs. Keylists are used by the UCS when creating authorization messages that are addressed to the diagnostic circuit embedded   in decoders specific to the encoder system.

Key Synchronization

When a set of services defined on a single UCS (or multiple UCSs) provide unique program keys encrypted under identical category keys. In this mode, each service category epoch shall be defined for the same duration and the epoch transition synchronization shall be dependent upon the host platform real time clock.

Kilohertz (kHz)

Kilo meaning thousand and Hertz meaning cycles so that 1KHz is equivalent to 1 thousand cycles per second.

Klystron

The specific beam tube used in some high power amplifiers (HPA's).

Ku Band

Operating in the 11 to 14 GHz range, these are medium-power satellites, requiring about 40 to 80 watts per transponder and permitting receiving dishes as small 1 meter acrossKu Band transmissions are sometimes subject to attenuation by severe rain conditions and other meteorological phenomenon
