Abstract
ANIK-B has been used since September 1979 in a Program Delivery Pilot Project to test the direct satellite transmission of TV signals to low cost TVRO terminals (LCET's) to determine the technical performance of these terminals over a long period, the ability of users to operate the terminals, and the acceptability of the signals received. 43 LCET's which have been installed in Northwestern Ontario, receive programs of the Ontario Educational Communications Authority. In October 1980, a detailed technical evaluation was made of the performance of 25 of the terminals. The report describes the procedures used to make the on-site measurements and documents the results obtained.
