Terrestrial television has survived the introduction of cable, broadband and satellite.
Today, it is still the basic way of receiving television in many countries. Chapter
6 contains lots of information on antennas as well as detailed information on the
DVB-T standard based on COFDM —one of the most advanced modulation schemes ever introduced.
The design and advantages of this system are discussed along with the details about
set-top boxes. Possible reception problems in single frequency networks (SFN) and
ways to avoid these problems are covered. (The American ATSC-standard for digital
terrestrial TV is covered in Appendix 1). There is also a section in mobile terrestrial
Chapter 6 contains 22 illustrations.
Many in-house filtering amplifiers have two outputs, making it easy to connect two
TV sets with no losses.
