Microwave and SATCOM Systems Principles and Practical Operation Training Course
Microwave and SATCOM Systems Principles and Practical Operation Training Course is a special 4-day hands-on program covering all aspects of SATCOM and Microwave systems. This course provides a complete background for understanding basic operation and setup of both terrestrial and satellite microwave systems. It is designed to provide a working understanding of the basic design, installation/adjustment, operation, and troubleshooting of both SATCOM and point-to-point terrestrial microwave links.

Satellite-communications (SATCOM) systems are means of connecting two points or multiple points with limited bandwidth and capacity.
Both satellite and ground-based transmissions use microwaves based on electromagnetic radiation (EM) with wavelength lambda (λ) range 0.3 to 0.001 meters, with corresponding frequency between 100 megahertz and 30 gigahertz (GHz).
Satellite-Based Transmissions governed by the World Administrative Radio Congress, WARC, a body of International Telecommunications Union regulating the use of radio spectrum. The C-band for example uses frequencies between 3.7 and 4.2 GHz, and from 5.9 to 6.4 GHz. The Ku-band satellites use frequencies between 11 and 12 GHz.
Terrestrial Microwave Transmission or Microwave transmission in the atmosphere takes place in a direct line of sight (LOS) between the Tx and Rx antenna.
Satellite communications works with LOS from the communications satellite.
