Spectrum

DTG Members are working to ensure maximum benefit is realised for the UK from spectrum use while ensuring minimum disruption, specifically with regard to accessing TV white space spectrum (TVWS). White spaces are the name given to parts of the spectrum that are unused in a particular location and time.

With this in mind, our members are working to better understand the techniques enabling technologies to co-exist in the UHF spectrum, leading to the development of future improvements.

Current workstreams

  • DTG Dynamic Spectrum Access Forum (DSA) brings together all constituencies interested in TV White Space activity to discuss the implementation and impact of TVWS devices. The Forum is open to DTG members, contact [email protected] for details.
  • DTG RF Group discusses the co-existence of new spectrum usage with TV receivers and proposes any specification changes or best practise guidelines. The Group is open to DTG members, contact [email protected] for details.
  • The Wireless Test & Innovation Centre which, with the support of government, industry and academic institutions, is being used to investigate co-existence issues for all services operating below 1GHz. The state of the art facility has the capability for testing a range of internationally used radio-based services such
    as 4G LTE, DTV and DAB and has the UK’s largest Gigahertz Transverse Electromagnetic (GTEM)
    cell, enabling electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) radiated testing in a controlled environment.

The DTG has a wealth of resources available to its Members which includes reports, papers, infographics and presentations. We also have an extensive DTG Archive which covers broadcast industry developments over almost a quarter of a century. However some DTG publications are available by email on a complimentary basis.
