The use of TV White Spaces on a secondary, unlicensed basis has been of great interest recently in academia, industry and regulatory bodies worldwide. Central to this is the ability to sense incumbent TV signals (ATSC and DVB-T) at extremely low signal levels (−114 dBm to −120 dBm). These levels have been determined primarily through theoretical means, where worst-case interference situations have been considered with little or no probabilistic or measurement studies. While limited field… CONTINUE READING
