What Exactly Is 8-vsb Anyway?

  title={What Exactly Is 8-vsb Anyway?},
  author={David A. Sparano},
The USA invented it, the ATTC tested it, the FCC accepted it, everyone is talking about it, soon we will all get it in our homes but what is 8-VSB anyway? Simply put, 8-VSB is the RF modulation format utilized by the DTV (ATSC) digital television standard to transmit digital bits over the airwaves to the home consumer. Since any terrestrial TV system must overcome numerous channel impairments such as ghosts, noise bursts, signal fades, and interference in order to reach the home viewer, the… 
The performance of macro cellular networks operating in American TV white space
This thesis determines the TV transmitter’s total interference power, spread over the US and considering each available channel, where after mobile broadband performance can be evaluated in different use-cases with different channel selection criteria.
Digital demodulation of DTV signals for passive radar application
