An unsigned article in BroadcastEngineering reports:
The FCC Office of Engineering and Technology released a report March 30 showing that none of DTV receivers tested to determine their ability to reject interference from proposed TV-band devices using so-called TV white-band channels and other sources “appeared to fully achieve the ATSC recommended guidelines for interference rejection performance.” ¶ The Technical Research Branch Laboratory Division conducted the tests to help in assessing interference to DTV reception from non-TV use of unused TV spectrum, often called white space use, non-TV use of spectrum adjacent to TV spectrum and other DTV stations. ¶ Significantly, the ATSC interference rejection guidelines for DTVs are less stringent than the assumptions made about receiver performance used as criteria for current DTV interference protection. The tests also show the degree to which the tested DTV receivers comply with ATSC’s voluntary receiver performance guideline standards. ...
