Submission + - Amateur ATSC digital TV success (blogspot.com) 1

nsayer writes: "I am an amateur radio operator (N6QQQ) and am trying to set up an amateur television (ATV) repeater. Nothing new there, but this one will transmit digital TV using 8VSB modulation as compatible as possible with the ATSC digital TV standard. I bought some DATV gear from SR Systems and it arrived last week. Yesterday, I got it all working and successfully transmitted 8VSB modulated digital video at 420-426 MHz and successfully decoded it with an HD Homerun receiver. I'm using very low power at present, but my goal is to transmit with 150 watts of ERP from the summit of Mt. San Bruno at noon on 2/14/09 — the last weekend before the broadcast TV analog shut-down.

More details, including recorded video of some of my transmissions, can be had at my blog."

  • Good luck with it. I used to do ATV on 70/23cm over twenty years ago. Nice to see people still enjoying it. Best wishes. Mike ( G6COQ, uk )
