L Band Frequency Values | L Band Frequency Advantages,Applications
This page mentions L Band Frequency Values, L Band Frequency Applications and advantages of L Band frequency.
|Frequency Band Designation||Frequency Range||Wavelength|
|L Band||1 to 2 GHz||30 to 15 cm|
The L band frequency lies between UHF Band and S Band as shown in the figure-1 below. As mentioned in the table, it lies from 1 GHz to 2 GHz in the frequency spectrum with wavelengths between 15 centimeters to 30 centimeters.
L Band Frequency Advantages
Following are the advantages of L Band Frequency over other frequency bands.
➨It has less interference from heavy rain fading channel.
➨It has less expensive hardware.
➨It can make use of smaller antennas for communication.
L Band Frequency Applications
Following are the applications of L Band Frequency.
• L-Band is used in satellite communications. The band from 950 MHz to 1450 MHz is used for the purpose. In order to simply satellite ground station equipment hardware L Band modem is used instead of IF ( 70 +/- 18 MHz) Modem.
• Inmarsat satellite provide L-Band interface for ground station devices to communicate.
