Caption: Communications satellite. Computer illustration of a communications satellite in space orbiting above the Earth, with green communication signals seen. The satellite has solar cell arrays (blue) to produce power, and a rounded dish antenna to receive and transmit communication signals. These satellites act as relay vehicles for radio signals. Typical communication satellites orbit with the same period as the rotation of the Earth at a height of 35,700 kilometres and appear to 'hover' above the same point at all times. Communication satellites are used to relay telephone and fax messages, computer data and to broadcast television signals.
