From time to time, I have found it necessary to write specific software programs to assist with my work as a satellite communications consultant.
Recognising that these programs may be of use to other professionals involved in satellite communications, I have
made the some of the software available for download and licensing via my other business
GEOPoint Antenna Pointing Calculator
- A tool for calculating the antenna pointing angles from an earth station location to any visible
geostationary satellite. This program will be of use to both the professional satellite engineer
and the satellite TV and DX enthusiast. The basic calculator function can be downloaded and used
free of charge. To access the extended plotting, reporting, sun interference prediction, and ITU Rain Climate database portions
of the program you will need to register.
TxPlan Transponder Plan Diagram Software
- A simple tool for producing diagrams of satellite transponder frequency plans. This tool can be used to illustrate
the layout of transponders on a satellite, or the layout of carriers within a transponder. Transponder diagrams can be
saved as bitmap images for use in reports or presentations. This program can be downloaded and used free of charge.
