VSAT Antennas become more and more popular in recent years, however, some people don't know how to select the VSAT antenna site, and this article will give you guidance.

The VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) is a telecommunication system based on wireless satellite network. Although it is easily implemented due to the wireless nature of connectivity, a critical issue that cannot be ignored during a VSAT installation is how to prepare the vsat antenna site.

In order to achieve maximum performance of your antenna system, it is important to select the correct location for the antenna .The following guidelines should be observed when selecting a site for the installation.

Firstly, the vsat antenna site should have a clear unobstructed view to the satellite, so it should be clear of any obstructions, such as trees or buildings.

Secondly, the site should be relatively flat and level for ease of installation and access to the antenna.

Thirdly, the site should be checked for underground obstruction, such as buried cables or pipes.

Fourthly, all local building codes should be adhered to (such as grounding, foundation requirements, zoning rules, set backs, etc)


More over, the antenna site must be positioned conveniently close to the main building that will house the electronics and provide the electrical power to the antenna.
