Abstract: The requirements for future DVB-T/H networks demand that broadcasters design and deploy networks that provide ubiquitous reception in challenging indoors and other obstructed situations. It is essential that such networks are designed costeffectively and with minimized environmental impact. The EC funded project PLUTO has since its start in 2006 explored the use of diversity to improve coverage in these difficult situations. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the performance of transmit and receive diversity gains with two antennas to improve the reception of DVB-T/H systems operating in different realistic propagation conditions through a series of tests using the Spirent dual channel emulator.
