    Abstract :

    Satellite operations at V-band in tropical and equatorial regions are constrained as a result of attenuation from rain. The use of v band in satellite communication can enhance the communication capacity in GEO satellite system. Up to the past few years, geostationary telecommunication satellite systems have kept taking advantage of the satellite natural wide area coverage capability in a context broadband was the major issue. Now a day’s situation has changed long term perspectives for geostationary satellites are challenged by their capability to remain competitive, in terms of capacity versus cost and supported services, it should offer wide capacity, good availability, high flexibility, and guarantee the required quality of service in a cost efficient way. The major limitation is the effect of radio-wave propagation through the lowest layers of the atmosphere. As the operating frequency is increased, the attenuation and scintillation effects of atmospheric gas, clouds and rain become more severe.
