yes,you heard me already,so get yourself togather,stop dreaming and start a real living: Satellites r Us :Yemenat Satcom is looking for few bright,exeptional and motivated people to work in satellite engineering and marketing,let's see what you know about satellites??? I will answer this one only,and you answer the next question to get contacted;What is a Satellite? A satellite is a specialized wireless receiver/transmitter - essentially a radio-frequency repeater - that is launched by a rocket and placed in orbit around the earth. Today, there are literally hundreds of commercial satellites in operation around the world. These satellites are used for such diverse purposes as wide-area network communication, weather forecasting, television broadcasting, amateur radio communications, Internet access and the Global Positioning System. The first man-made satellite, which was about the size of a basketball, was launched by the Soviet Union in the late 1950s. It did nothing but repeatedly transmit a simple Morse code signal back to earth. Since that time, satellites have become much more powerful. Most communication satellites in use today are geostationary. They orbit the earth directly over the equator, approximately 22 000 miles (35 400 km) up. At this altitude, one complete trip around the earth (relative to the sun) takes 24 hours. Thus, the satellite remains over the same spot on the surface of the earth (geo) at all times, and stays fixed in the sky (stationary) from any point on the surface from which it can be "seen." A single geostationary satellite can "see" approximately 40 percent of the earth's surface. Three such satellites, spaced at equal intervals (120 angular degrees apart), can provide coverage of the entire civilized world. A single transponder on one of these satellites (the part of the satellite that transmits signals back to Earth, of which a typical satellite has 32) is capable of handling approximately 100 million bits of information per second. This means that if the transponder is accessed for only 90 seconds per day, close to a billion bytes of data would be transferred - the equivalent of 865 000 double-spaced pages. With this immense capacity, today's communication satellites are an ideal medium for transmitting and receiving almost any kind of content, from simple data to the most complex and bandwidth-intensive video, audio and data content. Now answer this question: what is Vsat???
