Training Focus
his course will focus on LF/MF frequency and coverage planning using CHIRplus_BC. It will start with an overview on the international frequency plans covering the LF and MF frequency bands, i.e. GE75 and RJ81, available databases and coordination rules. Special focus will be given to the LF/MF specific ground wave and sky wave propagation, day time and night time coverage analysis as well as interference calculations. Examples and case studies will be shown for analog and digital (DRM) systems using CHIRplus_BC. Course Objectives After completing the course, participants will be able to use CHIRplus_BC in a very knowledgeable way. In addition to the use of the tool, delegates will also understand the theoretical and practical background to the calculations.

Training Focus

The course will start by showing delegates how to configure CHIRplus_BC and the basics of field strength calculations and interference analysis. One focus of the training will be the usage of the network processor and the various calculation results. As well as the digital features of CHIRplus_BC its use for analog services will also be illustrated.

Understanding the principles of the analog network analysis is a prerequisite for developing efficient networks for digital terrestrial broadcasting. Digital terrestrial networks (DAB+, DVB-T, DVB-T2, DVBT2 LITE, ISDB-T, ATSC) bring a number of new requirements regarding the reception mode which will be covered. Planning for portable or mobile reception is linked with many new features such as single frequency networks (SFNs) and network gain. To meet these new requirements it is necessary to learn and use the numerous features of the tool efficiently. The course will impart both theoretical and practical knowledge. The training will involve the usage of CHIRplus_BC and some case studies.
