This work reports a coexistence analysis between 5G New Radio (5G NR) and Satellite Television Receive Only (TVRO) in C-Band. The coexistence experiments were based on the two following systems: broadcast of analog and digital TV channels, received by a 1.7 meters parabolic antenna pointed to the Star One C2 geostationary satellite from Embratel; 100 MHz-bandwidth 5G NR link at 3.55 GHz with two printed logperiodic antennas. The performance analysis has been carried out as a function of the TV channel quality signal, by means of varying the 5G power level at vertical polarization. Measured spectra of either RF and IF signals are presented for demonstrating a probable interference problem due to the installation of 5G base stations close to TVRO user homes. For instance, there are still 22 million TVRO users in Brazil and 120 million homes attended by C-Band satellites in United States for radio and TV services.
