We have developed a direct spectrum division transmission (DSDT) technique that can divide a single-carrier signal into multiple sub-spectra and assign them to dispersed frequency resources of the satellite transponder to improve the spectrum efficiency of the whole system. This paper summarizes the satellite experiments on DSDT over a single and/or multiple satellite transponders, while changing various parameters such as modulation schemes, roll-off ratios, and symbol rates. In addition, by considering practical use conditions, we present an evaluation of the performance when the spectral density of each sub-spectrum differed across transponders. The satellite experiments demonstrate that applying the proposal does not degrade the bit error rate (BER) performance. Thus, the DSDT technique is a practical approach to use the scattered unused frequency resources over not only a single transponder but also multiple ones.
