This paper evaluates two alternatives to today's noise-limited single-transmitter broadcast television systems, either of which would improve spectrum efficiency. One alternative is to increase the transmit power of each broadcaster's only transmitter. The other alternative is to replace that single transmitter with a multi-transmitter single frequency network (SFN). For both approaches, this paper calculates the relationship between the maximum achievable spectrum efficiency and the cost… CONTINUE READING
