Parabolic Reflector antenna is widely used reflector antenna which according to the structure composition of the microwave photo-like searchlight. Ground station antenna consists reflector, feed system and kingpost. Normally, feed is assembled on focus of reflector.
The reflector curve of earth station antenna is based on parabolic definition and equation. The main parameter of parabolic antenna for sale is focus, diameter and max half field angle. In order to discuss the radiation field and directivity of parabolic antenna, the exit path field must be calculated firstly.
When transmitting, the signal radiates from the feed to the paraboloid, and then radiates into the air after reflecting from the paraboloid. Since the feed is located at the focus of the paraboloid, the radio wave is reflected by the paraboloid and radiated in parallel along the normal direction of the paraboloid. When receiving, after reflected by the reflecting surface, the radio wave converges to the feed source, and the feed source can receive the maximum signal energy.
When high frequency current is applied to the conductor, electric and magnetic fields will be generated in the surrounding space. According to the distribution characteristics of electromagnetic field in space, it can be divided into near zone, middle zone and far zone. Let R be the distance from a point in space to the conductor. When the length L of the conductor is far less than the wavelength, the radiation is very weak; When the length L of the wire is increased to be comparable with the wave length, the current on the wire will be greatly increased, thus forming strong radiation.

The main function of earth station antenna is to collect the weak radio signals emitted by the satellite and send the radio signals containing control commands and data to the satellite, and to remove the clutter signal as much as possible; in general, the larger the satellite ground station antenna diameter, the stronger the signal, The better the reception quality.
The satellite ground antenna widely use included single reflector as prime focus type and dual-reflector antennas (main reflector and sub-reflector). Common dual-reflector antennas include Cassegrain antenna, Gregorian antenna, and ring focus antenna.
