To calculate the satellite coverage area, multiply the satellite power (P) by 50, then divide by 1 plus the ratio of the satellite’s orbital radius (R) to the distance from the Earth’s surface (d). This will give you the coverage area in square kilometers.

The Satellite Coverage Area Calculator is a useful tool in satellite communication to estimate how much of the Earth’s surface a satellite can cover based on its distance and the Earth’s radius. It helps estimate the area on Earth that a satellite can cover, which is crucial for understanding the satellite’s operational range for communications, broadcasting, or other purposes
