This is the homepage of the Osmocom sub-project ''GEO Mobile Radio''.

It is collecting information and software related to the ETSI GEO Mobile Radio specification and its practical implementations like the [wiki:Thuraya] satellite phone network

GEO Mobile Radio is a set of specifications describing a satellite based mobile phone network.


Radio aspects

It uses the L-band frequencies 1634 to 1656 MHz (earth to space) and 1532.5 to 1554.5 MHz (space to earth) for communication
between mobile phones and the respective satellites. The polarization is circular (left) and the modulation is pi/4 QPSK, using
a channel spacing of 31.25 kHz
