70 MHz Beacon Tracking Receiver
SSC's Beacon Receivers provide a linear DC signal strength voltage refier for earth station tracking and antenna control.
The Model 3430 is frequency agile for tuning any satellite beacon signal or narrow-band SCPC channel on 10 KHz steps across the full 500 MHz band. Pre-detection noise bandwidth of 50 Khz facilitates accurate tracking at very low C/N levels.
The output of the Model 3430 Beacon Receiver is a DC voltage proportional to the input signal level to facilitate both tracking control and automatic power control.
