Claim of US Patent No. 10,193,645

1. A system, comprising:a signal reception assembly that is configured to receive a plurality of satellite signals captured using a satellite signal reflector, wherein each of the plurality of satellite signals is different from remaining ones of the plurality satellite signals; and
a processing circuitry that is configured to:
process at least two signals from the plurality of satellite signals; and
generate an output signal based on the processing of the at least two signals;
wherein:
the output signal comprises only one or more portions from each of the at least two signals;
the one or more portions from the at least two signals are stacked within the output signal;
stacking of the one or more portions from the at least two signals comprises applying channel equalization; and
the channel equalization comprising equalizing power of a frequency band corresponding to the one or more portions, the equalizing of power comprising:
dividing the frequency band into a plurality of frequency bins;
applying a weighting to frequencies in each of the plurality of frequency bins; and
applying power equalization over the plurality of frequency bins, wherein the power equalization is configured to prevent leakage of power from one frequency bin into adjacent frequency bins across the entire frequency band.
