Paper Abstract

We report the performance of a low-cost fiber-optic link used for distributing high-quality reference frequencies to several satellite ground stations. We demonstrate that the phase-noise performance of the fiber-optic link is adequate for supplying an S-band telemetry receiver with a 5 MHz reference signal.
