1 Scope

The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for transmitting equipment for

broadcast sound services using the Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) modulation system operating in VHF band III

(174 MHz to 240 MHz).

DAB transmissions are licensed by national administrations. The Final Acts of the CEPT T-DAB Planning Meeting

Constanţa, 2007 (WI95revCO07) [i.2] and the Final Acts of the Regional Radiocommunication Conference for planning

of the digital terrestrial broadcasting service in parts of Regions 1 and 3, in the frequency bands 174 MHz to 230 MHz

and 470 MHz to 862 MHz (RRC-06) [i.3] provide spectrum masks for Out-of-Band emissions under different

conditions. These requirements are represented by four transmission cases in the present document, see table 0. The

license conditions set by the national administration stipulate which transmission case (Out-of-Band spectrum mask)

applies.
Table 0: Transmission cases
Case Description Identification in Identification in RRC-06
WI95revCO07
1 Applicable to DAB transmissions operating in areas 1: critical 2: sensitive
critical for adjacent channel DAB to DAB interference,
and in any case when it is necessary to protect other
services operating on adjacent frequencies on a primary
basis

2 Applicable to DAB transmissions when no other case 2: non-critical 1: non-critical

applies
3 Applicable to DAB transmitters in exceptional Critical case considering
circumstances to protect safety services protection of distress
and safety frequencies
4 Applicable to DAB transmissions operating on a 3: sensitive in certain
case-by-case basis in certain areas areas where channel 12D
is in use

1 Scope

The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for transmitting equipment for

broadcast sound services using the Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) modulation system operating in VHF band III

(174 MHz to 240 MHz).

DAB transmissions are licensed by national administrations. The Final Acts of the CEPT T-DAB Planning Meeting

Constanţa, 2007 (WI95revCO07) [i.2] and the Final Acts of the Regional Radiocommunication Conference for planning

of the digital terrestrial broadcasting service in parts of Regions 1 and 3, in the frequency bands 174 MHz to 230 MHz

and 470 MHz to 862 MHz (RRC-06) [i.3] provide spectrum masks for Out-of-Band emissions under different

conditions. These requirements are represented by four transmission cases in the present document, see table 0. The

license conditions set by the national administration stipulate which transmission case (Out-of-Band spectrum mask)

applies.

1 Scope

The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for transmitting equipment for

broadcast sound services using the Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) modulation system operating in VHF band III

(174 MHz to 240 MHz).

DAB transmissions are licensed by national administrations. The Final Acts of the CEPT T-DAB Planning Meeting

Constanţa, 2007 (WI95revCO07) [i.2] and the Final Acts of the Regional Radiocommunication Conference for planning

of the digital terrestrial broadcasting service in parts of Regions 1 and 3, in the frequency bands 174 MHz to 230 MHz

and 470 MHz to 862 MHz (RRC-06) [i.3] provide spectrum masks for Out-of-Band emissions under different

conditions. These requirements are represented by four transmission cases in the present document, see table 0. The

license conditions set by the national administration stipulate which transmission case (Out-of-Band spectrum mask)

applies.

1 Scope

The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for transmitting equipment for

broadcast sound services using the Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) modulation system operating in VHF band III

(174 MHz to 240 MHz).

DAB transmissions are licensed by national administrations. The Final Acts of the CEPT T-DAB Planning Meeting

Constanţa, 2007 (WI95revCO07) [i.2] and the Final Acts of the Regional Radiocommunication Conference for planning

of the digital terrestrial broadcasting service in parts of Regions 1 and 3, in the frequency bands 174 MHz to 230 MHz

and 470 MHz to 862 MHz (RRC-06) [i.3] provide spectrum masks for Out-of-Band emissions under different

conditions. These requirements are represented by four transmission cases in the present document, see table 0. The

license conditions set by the national administration stipulate which transmission case (Out-of-Band spectrum mask)

applies.
Table 0: Transmission cases
Case Description Identification in Identification in RRC-
WI95revCO07 06

1 Applicable to DAB transmissions operating in areas critical 1: critical 2: sensitive

for adjacent channel DAB to DAB interference, and in any
case when it is necessary to protect other services
operating on adjacent frequencies on a primary basis

2 Applicable to DAB transmissions when no other case 2: non-critical 1: non-critical

applies
3 Applicable to DAB transmitters in exceptional Critical case considering
circumstances to protect safety services protection of distress and
safety frequencies

4 Applicable to DAB transmissions operating on a case-by- 3: sensitive in certain

case basis in certain areas areas where channel
