The present document applies to ODUs for satellite broadcast reception from geostationary satellites in the frequency band 10,7 GHzto 12,75 GHz. An ODU receives electromagnetic waves from a satellite. It amplifies the receive signal at low noise, converts it to a lower frequency band and makes it available to the IDU on an interface.
Part of the IDU functionality may be integrated with the ODU. In that case the present document applies only to the ODU functionality that is defined above.
The present document contains requirements to demonstrate that radio equipment both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference.
