Eutelsat Adopts Anti-Jamming Tech In Upcoming Satellite - Feb 2013
“This function involves embarking new-generation frequency converters behind the satellites Receive antennas,” reads Eutelsat’s press release. “This will put Eutelsat in the unique position to be able to change the frequency of an uplink signal without any impact on the downlink frequency received by user terminals, marking a major breakthrough in the bid for continuity of service for broadcast signals jammed by rogue uplink signals.”

New ETSI mobile/broadcast group to focus on convergence — PolicyTracker: the spectrum management newsletter
Although the group is an industry standardisation group (ISG) under the auspices of ETSI, its chair Simon Fell told PolicyTracker its members are to use it as a vehicle to form study programmes on the topic, rather than to work on new standards.

One senior source from the mobile industry told PolicyTracker that “there has been rather a proliferation of ISGs of late. They are a rather curious beast – under the ambit of a standards organisation, but not allowed to make technical standards”.

He said the relatively small and diminishing resources of operators for standards activities must be targeted at the most important efforts and that “these small activities set up in unexpected places are often established in the hope of shifting the balance between different sectors”.

AM Radio’s Big Problem: I Can Hear You Now! - Feb 2015
"The large reader response to the Curmudgeon’s recent blog post on the multiple problems of AM broadcast radio, I Can’t Hear You Any More! AM Radio’s Big Problem, was impressive. The responses were of high quality, containing vigorous discussion. Thus it seems useful to summarize the reader’s views and to present a kind of informal report on how we as a group feel about these problems."

TVTechnology: NAB Says DOD-BAS Agreement Will Protect ENG Spectrum -- Dec 2013
"Just before Thanksgiving Day the NAB issued a short statement on NTIA support for the ENG Spectrum Sharing Agreement between broadcasters and the Department of Defense. ... The NTIA fully supports the DOD proposal for the 1755-1780 MHz band which allows use of that band for LTE wireless broadband. Implementation of that proposal requires that DoD have shared access to the 2025-2110 MHz portion of the 2 GHz BAS band, and the DoD already has some operations in that band. " Includes links to Nebbia letter and filing

Editorial: Can LTE Broadcast deliver TV/mobile convergence? Oct 2013
"An academic paper by Ericsson scientists argues LTE Broadcast could be used to replace DTT transmissions to standard TVs, offering huge benefits in spectrum efficiency. Their proposal takes the example of the US and says that if cellular towers are reused to create a single frequency network “it is possible to support TV services with 84 MHz of spectrum via LTE… in contrast to the 300 MHz used by today’s ATSC TV broadcast system.” Europe is on the verge of making the 700 MHz band not just a broadcasting band but a co-primary band for broadcasting and mobile. There is a Europe-wide consultation on this subject, France and Germany have already decided to do so and the UK is consulting on the same proposal. "

21st-century rabbit ears -
Could the DTV transition reverse the decline in over-the-air TV viewing?
"In the wake of the transition to digital television, many Southern California viewers are finding they can get nearly three times as many channels as they once could with an antenna. And rather than the erratic, fuzzy reception of yesteryear, today's rabbit ears are capable of delivering a surprisingly clear high-definition picture.
Best of all, it's free"

TWC Gets Tough On Retrans - 2009-12-12 07:00:00 | Multichannel News
“Basically, the fight is because cable wants to set the initial retrans bar as low as possible (from which future contractual growth will compound), while News Corp. needs to capitalize on its strong broadcast ratings by having retrans revenue offset the weak advertising environment,”
