Abstract

In Taiwan, there are six major NTSC terrestrial broadcasting stations and 129 relay stations, which cover about 98% of Taiwan's population. This paper addresses the planning of DTV broadcasting in Taiwan. DTV signals will be broadcast from the same six major transmitting sites and are expected to provide similar coverage. To extend DTV coverage beyond the major transmitting sites, only the existing 9 NTSC relay stations with over 100W transmitting power would relay DTV signals. Residences living beyond the above coverage areas could rely on CATV or DTH to receive terrestrial DTV programs.
