For our Ham Radio at the Hands-On Museum project, we want to set up a television station. My first thought was to buy a transmitter from PC Electronics that sends standard-scan analog TV. Then, I got to thinking, why bother with that? If our goal is to show that we’re at least up with current technology, then shouldn’t we be doing digital TV?
I have found a bunch of European hams doing digital TV using the European standard and one page of links on DXZone:
- F4DAY’s Amateur Television and High-Speed Data Signalling
- Analog and Digital TV (DVB-T) Signal Generation
- Dutch Digital ATV Site
- DXZone: Digital ATV
So far, though, I haven’t seen anything on ATV using the new US standard. Is anyone out there experimenting with this or even making gear that I can purchase?
