This paper proposes a novel channel control technique for applying the propagation variation condition of mobile satellite earth stations. It is based on adaptive multi-carrier channel allocation (AMCA) that adjusts a modulation method carrier-by-carrier to flexibly utilize the satellite bandwidth and power simultaneously. Since the proposed technique controls transmission power and re-allocates AMCA channels in accordance with the earth station's propagation gain, it enables each of the channel resources needed for communication between stations to be maintained at a minimum level. Simulation evaluation shows that the proposed technique utilizes satellite resources more efficiently than a conventional method that fixes transmission power for all earth stations. As a result, it enhances the system capacity by about 1.6 times.
