The Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) is evaluating the possibility of the reception of digital terrestrial television signals (DVB-T) in seven provinces.


Measurements commenced in July constitute an element of the digital terrestrial television implementation in Poland. The evaluation of the possibility of receiving DVB-T will last until the end of September on the territory of 505 communes inhabited by over 6 million Poles.

Measuring teams from Regional Offices of UKE conduct tests on the areas where the analogue TV signal will be switched off already this year, and theoretical calculations demonstrate that a given location may have problems with the reception of digital television. Tests are performed in the following provinces: Lower Silesia, Kujawy-Pomerania, Lubuskie, Pomerania, Warmia-Masuria, Wielkopolska and West Pomerania.

The purpose of measurements is to verify the previously calculated values of the electromagnetic field strength of the signal of digital television programmes broadcast from terrestrial transmitters. Tests in the field are conducted by means of mobile measuring stations.

Additionally, correct reception of the signal is confirmed by means of a TV set with MPEG-4 decoder connected to a nineteen-element subscriber antenna - each measuring team is equipped with identical sets of receivers.

Measurements check different capacities to receive signals transmitted in multiplexes 1, 2 and 3 (MUX-1, 2, 3). The possibility to receive signals from several transmitters - the main transmitter and other transmitters available in a given area - is tested in the same location.

Measurements and evaluation of the possibility to receive DVB-T signal will be carried out until the end of September.
