Measurement of Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial (DVB-T) Signal in Malaysia
Keywords:DVB-T, Field Strength, MER, BER,
AbstractThis paper presents an analysis of the measurement results of DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial) signals in Malaysia. In this project, a measuring vehicle equipped with measuring equipment and receiving antenna (directional) placed at the height of 10 m above ground level was used. Parameters quality of DVB-T: field strength, MER (Modulation Error Rate), BER (Bit Error Rate) before Viterbi and BER after Viterbi for100 test points in the coverage area were investigated and analyzed. The measurement shows 99% of the test point received a good DVB-T signal quality (reception possible).
