New FCC Guidelines on Radio Frequency Exposure
Comments on DTV Power Levels
Real World DTV Coverage Prediction
Important Note After this column was at the printers I noticed I'd used the 44 dBu signal level from the FCC's uncorrected 6th Report and Order Appendix A. The correct signal level, based on a 7 dB UHF noise figure, is 41 dBu. Therefore, the three levels of signal strength should be 41, 61 and 75 dBu, instead of those specified. The maps would show these levels if the transmitter power was 150 kW instead of the 300 kW indicated. I apologize for the error.
