ANTENNA SYSTEM OF A DISTRESS BUOY FOR USE IN A MARITIME SATELLITE COMMUNICATION SYSTEM (MARSAT)

Two different types of antenna systems for a distress buoy for use in the maritime satellite communication system (MARSAT) are described. The buoy radiates signals alternately on the frequencies 2182 kHz (medium frequency (MF) beacon) and 1.65 HGz (L band beacon). The L band antenna systems have been tested with success during the application technology satellite (ATS-6) experiments and during a previous European Space Research Organization (ESRO) balloon communication experiment.
