    I am an engineer either with 40+ years experience in the satellite field. For approximately 7 years I was the lead for Intelsat’s link budget department. I also have a PHD in Communications Theory. Have used your site a number of times and think it is excellent so would like to help contribute to it. Given that your post was dated last April I did not know if you are still looking for reviewers for your link budget chapters. Let me know if you are and I will be glad to review and provide comments.

  2. Charan, thank you for all of the hard work you put into this blog and making available these chapters from the book. You do a good job of simplifying complex concepts so that average people like me can learn. I know it’s not as easy as it appears. I’m reading the chapters of the book you posted and I have a few suggestions/edits. Most are trivial. Would you like me to send you some of the edits I have?

      I am only on the third chapter right now, which I will be posting in about two weeks.
      I have two more chapters to do. My guess is not until the end of the year.

      Did you read the first two chapters? Wondering if they were helpful.
      Thanks, Charan
