City Of License
In American , Canadian and Philippine broadcasting, a CITY OF LICENSE or COMMUNITY OF LICENSE is the community that a radio station or television station is officially licensed to serve by that country's broadcast regulator. In North American broadcast law, the concept of _community of license_ dates to the early days of AM radio broadcasting. The requirement that a broadcasting station operate a _main studio_ within a prescribed distance of the community which the station is licensed to serve appears in U.S. law as early as 1939. Various specific obligations have been applied to broadcasters by governments to fulfill public policy objectives of broadcast localism , both in radio and later also in television, based on the legislative presumption that a broadcaster fills a similar role to that held by community newspaper publishers

Digital Terrestrial Television
DIGITAL TERRESTRIAL TELEVISION (DTTV or DTT) is a technological evolution of broadcast television and an advancement over analog television . DTTV broadcasts land-based (terrestrial) signals. The advantages of _digital_ terrestrial television are similar to digital versus analog in platforms such as cable, satellite, and all telecommunications: the efficient use of spectrum and provision of more capacity than analog, better quality images, and lower operating costs for broadcast and transmission (after the initial upgrade costs). A terrestrial implementation of digital television (DTV) technology uses an aerial to broadcast to a conventional television antenna (or aerial) instead of a satellite dish or cable television connection. Various systems of digital terrestrial broadcast television systems have been developed: * ATSC DTV - Advanced Television Standards Committee (System A) * ATSC-M/H - Advanced Television Systems Committee Mobile "> DTT transmitters located at Mount Zhentou in Tainan , Taiwan DTTV is transmitted on radio frequencies through terrestrial space in the same way as standard analog television , with the primary difference being the use of multiplex transmitters to allow reception of multiple channels on a single frequency range (such as a UHF or VHF channel) known as subchannels

Ultra High Frequency
ULTRA HIGH FREQUENCY (UHF) is the ITU designation for radio frequencies in the range between 300 MHz and 3 GHz, also known as the DECIMETRE BAND as the wavelengths range from one meter to one decimeter . Radio waves with frequencies above the UHF band fall into the SHF (super-high frequency ) or microwave frequency range. Lower frequency signals fall into the VHF (very high frequency ) or lower bands. UHF radio waves propagate mainly by line of sight ; they are blocked by hills and large buildings although the transmission through building walls is strong enough for indoor reception. They are used for television broadcasting , cell phones , satellite communication including GPS , personal radio services including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth , walkie-talkies , cordless phones , and numerous other applications. The IEEE defines the UHF radar band as frequencies between 300 MHz and 1 GHz. Two other IEEE radar bands overlap the ITU UHF band: the L band between 1 and 2 GHz and the S band between 2 and 4 GHz. _ UHF television antenna on a residence. This type of antenna, called a Yagi-Uda antenna , is widely used at UHF frequencies. Another antenna type common at UHF; a reflective array TV antenna consisting of two high-bandwidth "bow tie" dipoles in front of a flat reflector screen

Virtual Channel
In most telecommunications organizations, a VIRTUAL CHANNEL is a method of remapping the _program number_ as used in H.222 Program Association Tables and Program Mapping Tables to a channel number that can be entered via digits on a receiver's remote control . A "virtual channel" was first used for DigiCipher 2 in North America and then later used and referred to as a LOGICAL CHANNEL NUMBER (LCN) for private European Digital Video Broadcasting extensions widely used by the NDS Group and NorDig in other markets. Pay television operators were the first to use either of these systems as a method of channel reassignment and/or rearrangement that suited their need to group multiple channels by their content or origin as well as to a lesser extent to localize advertising to a particular market. Free-to-air ATSC uses the DigiCipher 2 method to maintain the same radio frequency channel allocation that the NTSC channel was using when both were simulcasting so the same number could bring up either service. Free-to-air DVB network operators such as Freeview in the UK and that of the same name in New Zealand use the NorDig method and follow the same practice as pay TV operators

Program And System Information Protocol
The PROGRAM AND SYSTEM INFORMATION PROTOCOL (PSIP) is the MPEG
MPEG
(a video and audio industry group) and privately defined program-specific information originally defined by General Instrument for the DigiCipher 2 system and later extended for the ATSC digital television system for carrying metadata about each channel in the broadcast MPEG transport stream of a television station and for publishing information about television programs so that viewers can select what to watch by title and description. CONTENTS * 1 What PSIP does * 2 Included tables * 2.1 Directed channel change * 3 See also * 4 External links WHAT PSIP DOESPSIP defines virtual channels and content ratings , as well as electronic program guides with titles and (optionally) descriptions to be decoded and displayed by the ATSC tuner . PSIP can also send: * the exact time referenced to UTC
UTC
and GPS time; * the short name , which some stations use to publish their callsign. A maximum of seven characters can be used in a short name.PSIP is defined in ATSC standard A/65, the most recent revision of which is A/65:2013, published in 2013. A/69 is a recommended practice for implementing PSIP in a television station. PSIP also supersedes the A/55 and A/56 protocol methods of delivering program guide information (which the ATSC has deleted)

Digital Subchannel
In broadcasting, DIGITAL SUBCHANNELS are a method of transmitting more than one independent program stream simultaneously from the same digital radio or television station on the same radio frequency channel. This is done by using data compression techniques to reduce the size of each individual program stream, and multiplexing to combine them into a single signal. The practice is sometimes called "multicasting ".

Network Affiliate
In the broadcasting industry (particularly in North America
North America
), a NETWORK AFFILIATE or AFFILIATED STATION is a local broadcaster, owned by a company other than the owner of the network, which carries some or all of the lineup of television programs or radio programs of a television or radio network . This distinguishes such a television or radio station from an owned-and-operated station (O&O), which is owned by the parent network. Notwithstanding this distinction, it is common in informal speech (even for networks or O&Os themselves) to refer to any station, O in addition, if a company owns two or more stations affiliated with the same network, affiliation contracts may have end-of-term dates that are the same or differ among that company's affiliates, depending on when a particular station's affiliation agreement was either previously renewed or originally signed
