Many of these stations were being used by private households for free (legal) reception of programmes intended for paying customers such as cable-TV networks and hotels, and some were being used (illegally) by 'pirates' who were supplying television services to blocks of flats and other customers. As a result, the use of encoding (to prevent unauthorised reception) quickly became widespread and, for a short time, there was a downturn in the sales of TVRO stations. 10). 4 Indonesia The next country, after the USA, to use satellite communications for domestic purposes was Indonesia.

SPADE terminals are computer controlled and linked to other terminals in the system by a signalling channel. When a demand for a call arrives at an earth station the SPADE terminal: (i) Selects a pair of carrier frequencies (one for each direction of transmission) from a list of available frequencies (ii) Advises all other terminals that the pair of frequencies it has selected is in use (iii) Sets up a circuit, in co-operation with the SPADE terminal at the destination earth station, via carriers on the chosen frequencies.

6 INTELSATVB INTELSAT VB satellites are a variation of INTELSAT V intended to be particularly suitable for the provision of business services. The satellites operate at 6/4 GHz and at 14/11 GHz or 14/12 GHz (the choice of 11 or 12 GHz working can be made by command from the ground). e. Europe, Africa and parts of the Middle East); earth stations receiving these frequencies can therefore be sited in urban areas of Region 1 without any risk of interference from terrestrial stations. INTELSAT VB has also been modified to give greater flexibility in the connections which can be made between the input and output beams; a received signal can be transmitted in any or all of the spot, hemi or zone beams.
