What would be a typical transmission and reception rate range for a X-Band Low Gain Antenna for say 300Km from an orbiter? I figured a High Gain Antenna would be difficult to use since it requires accurate transmission rate paths, whereas the Low Gain is omnidirectional.

  • $\begingroup$ Is this a surface to orbiter transmission? Is the orbiter using a low or high gain antenna? $\endgroup$ Apr 19 at 19:11
