This paper proposes a deep neural network (DNN)based digital signal recovery (DSR) technique for low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite communications. Different from existing work, which only investigates impacts of the satellite-to-ground communication channel, this work focuses on handling the nonlinearity variations caused by input power level perturbations in the transmitter. The system is validated using a high gain radio frequency power ampliﬁer(RF-PA) operating at 28.5 GHz, where perturbations are introduced by varying the power level of the input signal, from −39 dBm to −31 dBm, to the RFPA. Experimental results show that the DNN trained at an input power level of−35 dBm achieved an improvement of 7.52 dB in the adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR), and an improvement of 4.2% in error vector magnitude (EVM). Applying the DDN trained at −35 dBm to other cases demonstrates that a 1 dB power level perturbation only leads to ≈ 1 dB degradation of the ACLR and ≈ 1.6% degradation of the EVM, respectively, which indicates the potential of the proposed approach.
