Hide / Show Abstract

Dual orthogonally-polarized signals are used in some satellite communication systems to increase channel capacity without increasing the bandwidth requirements. This technique is known as “frequency re-use”. However, interference between the channels due to wave depolarization on the propagation path can limit the ideally achievable system performance.
