Satellite TV
« on: January 17, 2019, 05:58:03 AM »
Reading another topic on satellites and GPS, and how it is proposed (by FE) that satellites dont exist and the signals are actually coming from ground based towers, how is it that you have to point your Sky dish up towards the sky to get a signal?

Surely if the signals were coming from gound level, then you should get a signal with the dish pointed along the ground, but no. If you use a signal detector, you can see that the signal is clearly coming from up above gound in the precise locations of the satellites.

Or have they come up with some way of bending the signals somehow?

The direction of the dish does not mean the direction of the ground station. Its horizontal direction is important, it is true. But vertical direction has to be a few upward prevent land based parasites.

So if I follow the horizontal direction of the dish, I will find a ground station?

And when you say a few upward, do you mean a few degrees upward? As some dishes need to point up by about 60 degrees to get a signal. This seems a bit high for a ground based signal to get over even tall obstructions. If you were to move that dish down by say 10 degrees you would lose the signal which doesnt seem to follow your reasoning.

My directv dish is in a corner on our upstairs balcony facing the building, and it is pointed up at the sky with just enough clearance to get a signal over the roof. It is surrounded on three sides by the building and the railing on the balcony is solid with fairly thick stucco walls that are roughly 4 feet tall, so it's completely blocked off on all sides except for a small point in the sky where it's aimed/gets signal. It is just my opinion but I don't see how this could be getting tv service from anything other than a satellite. Plus in the winter even a small amount of snow on the dish blocks the signal so I am sure the building is keeping any ground level signals from hitting the dish

No, the vertical direction matters as well. If you change it by any significant amount you lose the signal. This makes no sense for a ground based transmitter.

What land parasites are you referring to?

Not only are they all point upward but they’re all pointing to the same position in the sky.

For instance, I have DirecTV.  Every DirecTV dish in America points to the same patch of sky.  Some of those are aimed over the Gulf of Mexico making land based transmitters impossible.

Further, on a flat plane all these dishes point different locations.  There is no convergence.  However, on a globe they all point to the same point in geostationary orbit where DirecTV has their satellites.

Here is an excellent video with graphics showing how it’s impossible on a flat earth.

Incorrect. The reception angle (beam width) of a typical 90 cm dish at 14 GHz (in Ku band) is only about 1.6°.
So the dish must be aligned to within about 0.5° to avoid significant signal loss.

Where are the ground stations for all the Caravans using satellite TV throughout Central Australia far from any ground stations?

It is only in your imagination that the dishes are stationary.
In reality, both the dishes and the satellites are moving.

These dishes receive signals from geostationary satellites, i.e. satellites which are stationary relative to Earth. This only makes sense on a rotating round Earth, as that is the only model that allows these satellites to exist.

At the equator the dishes point straight up.

No, while the satellites must orbit the earth the ones used to transmit direct satellite TV signals are in geostationary orbits (their orbital period is exactly one sidereal day) and so remain in almost exactly the same place relative to the rotating earth.

a) So dishes can be stationary.

No, while the satellites must orbit the earth the ones used to transmit direct satellite TV signals are in geostationary orbits (their orbital period is exactly one sidereal day) and so remain in almost exactly the same place relative to the rotating earth.

b) dishes can not be stationary.

It is only in your imagination that the dishes are stationary.

But rabblack has same imagination with me. If sat device stays almost same point so dish does not need to move.

Please discuss with yourself each other than sound me with one voice.

There is no rabblack here.
If you mean Rabinoz, then no, he said something quite similar to what I did.

Notice how he said the same position relative to Earth?
That doesn't mean they are stationary.
That means they move with Earth.

Again, it is in your imagination that Earth, and thus objects which remain in the same position relative to Earth, are stationary.
In reality, Earth is not stationary and thus objects which remain in the same position relative to Earth are not stationary.

Again, these geostationary satellites only make sense for a rotating Earth.

That is why those direct TV satellites stay in almost exactly the same position relative to earth.

Now I do realise that you lack the intelligence and knowledge needed to understand all that but I assure that it is correct and it provides very good evidence that the earth is a rotating Globe.

If they are really has equal orbit with earth it means they are stationary. Because space around the earth can be accepted as moving or stationary isn't change anything. So they are stopping, compared the earth relatively, so they have to down to the earth. Now go return to your kindergarden school and learn more phsics.

Pure BS.
Most satellites do move relative to Earth, but not all.

The condition required for a satellites to orbit Earth in a circular orbit rather than fall down or get higher or go in an elliptical orbit is for the force from gravity to equal the force required to maintain the uniform circular motion, or to word it differently (and get rid of 1 variable) the acceleration due to gravity equals the acceleration required to maintain the orbit.
Both of these follow fairly simple rules.
Gravity has a=G M r-2.
Uniform circular motion has a=4 π2 r T-2.
This means these circular orbits exist when:
G M r-2=4 π2 r T-2
or r=(0.25 G M T2 π-2)1/3

In order for the satellite to remain stationary relative to a planet, it needs to be in such a circular orbit where the period of the orbit (T) is equal to the period of rotation of the planet, and it needs to be in an orbit above the equator.

This means there can be satellites which remain stationary relative to Earth.
More importantly, these satellites can only exist with a rotating Earth (otherwise the period is infinite and thus the radius is infinite).
That means the existence of these satellites, as demonstrated by satellite TV, is proof that Earth rotates.

Because space around the earth can be accepted as moving or stationary isn't change anything.
As Earth is rotating, not simply moving with linear motion, you can only change reference frames between them by using inertial forces, such as the centrifugal force. This simply replaces the acceleration required to maintain uniform circular motion with an outwards with the exact same formula.

Go actually learn physics before you tell others to.
This means for any given body
