Geostationary satellites are defined by their height and longitude.

Note: Non-stationary satellites are defined by their height (for example 200 km - 36,000 km), their longitude and their latitude.


New satellites can be added as follows:
  • Click the Add button on the Sites tab of the Edit Project Parameters dialog.
  • Use the mouse tool to activate via:
    • the menu Project > Site > Site: New
    • the icon in the project toolbar
      Note: The mouse can only be used if the project dialog is not displayed. If the Edit Project Parameters dialog is displayed, new transmitters can only be entered using the Transmitter tab.
  • Select the type of transmitter.
  • Set the satellite position.
