Hi I was doing some testing in Aotea (Wellington) yesterday and I was under the impression that DVB-T was only broadcast on Transmitting channels 48, 50 and 59 from Mt Kaukau but my meter was also picking up 51 and 57 with a much better signal level and SNR.

Is there another Transmitter broadcasting DVB-T or are they bringing in more transport streams.



Cheers

Kevin

Channels 51,53 and 57 are used on Baxters Knob, Fitzherbert and for the SFN (Single Frequency Network) infill sites. I believe the only SFN site at this stage is Haywards.

Baxters Knob, Fitzherbert and any other infills are all on the same channels with polarity variations, hence all make an SFN.

So is Fitzherbert active with the test signals for DVB-T?

Yes.

All DVB-T transmitters nationwide are now live.
