Band and Sub-Band Names

The sub-band name is written as a suffix to the band name.
Example 1: Sz = 3.9 - 4.2 GHz;
Example 2: Lx = 0.95 - 1.15 GHz.

Ka and Ku Satellite Bands

Please note that satellite services providers call a 14.0 to 14.5 GHz up- and a 11.45 to 11.7 GHz down link frequency range Ku Band. The frequency range around 17 to 20 GHz is called by some of them the Ka Band, even if it would be the K1 Band. Some satellite services providers «invented» their own Band names like D, E, F, … and assigned frequencies to to them. The table above reflects the band and sub-band designations as defined by the International Telecommunications Union ITU.
