The antenna configurations used for both earth stations and satellites are considered in some detail following an introduction outlining relevant basic antenna principles. The specifications applicable to antennas used for satellite communications and their effects on the design of the antennas are considered. Examples of both earth-station and satellite antennas and their characteristics are illustrated by reference to the INTELSAT and AUSSAT networks. Future trends in earth-station and satellite antenna design are also considered.
