Ku-Band Spectrum Analyzer Plots

Until I get a chance to play around with a Ku-Truck for a day,
here are some pictures taken last fall by some colleagues.  The time was approximately 2:00p.m. (E)


These pictures are courtesy of Andy Rothschadl of SureShot Transmissions and Steve Sontag of Relay House.  They were taken last fall and Steve sent me a message with the comments on changes.  I have also posted new plot diagrams purloined from Loral for Telstar birds on a separate page.
