In this paper, we present a compression technique for broadcasting a large number of RTCM-SC 104 data streams over a single satellite link. The technique we develop allows for a significant reduction of operational costs of the satellite link without any information loss. The construction of the compression allows work with RTCM streams composed of arbitrary types of messages, but the resulting space savings depend on statistics of the messages and their content.
