- 6 Billion Watts ERP?!!
Just imagine the heat any significant SWR would generate?? :)
- That area of Texas does have ice storms from time to time. However,
the array consists of over 2,500 antennas, each fed with its own 300
watt amplifier. What boggles the mind is the 0.02 degree beam width. Do
the math to see how narrow the beam still is at 200 miles, the height of
many of satellites. Then think about the power of that beam to any plane
flying overhead at 35,000 feet!
