DTTV Transmitting Antenna Installation And Channel Assignment In Metro Manila TV Towers

Alright, everyone! I thought that the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) in the Philippines had a difficulty to assign a new UHF TV channel compatible to ISDB-T DTTV transmission aside from the current revision of drafted Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR), since several TV channels were currently assigned on analog NTSC broadcast, which would discontinue on analog switch-off (ASO) period of December 31, 2015. I wish that NTC should try to assign on channels 52 to 59 (698 to 746 MHz) compatible to most TV towers that have lower tower structure, except for ABS-CBN Tower (installed above the tower mast and already assigned on Channel 43), PTV Tower (installed above the tower mast and already assigned on Channel 48), Coca-Cola Muñoz Trunk Radio on IBC analog TV transmission (a planned installation below the trunk radio antenna and lightning arrester pinnacle and above the neck, to be [pending] assigned on Channel 53), and GMA Tower of Power (a planned installation above the tower mast, to be [pending] assigned on Channel 26). The following respective illustration below regarding the pending UHF TV assignment for ISDB-T and the planned installation of DTTV antenna for most TV towers. Take note that it was only just my own sample or suggested application, but not actual.

Meanwhile, I also created a draft of sample coupon for most middle-and-poor-class households in case of a near ASO period. I wish that for those Philippine TV networks reading on this blog should try my own concept as well as they would desire to have a major sponsor from most products companies, telcos, and private and government sectors. The main problem is that they would spend a hundred billion pesos to buy a combined low-cost LCD/LED widescreen flat-panel TV set and an ISDB-T set-top-box (STB) at about Php 15,000 and produce a coupon to receive for a million households around the Philippines. See illustration below.

    Regarding the proposed DTV antenna installation at the ABC-5 tower (in Novaliches), it can be possible, since the antennas serving 106.7 FM have been deactivated (and its transmitter moved somewhere in Ortigas) and will be removed anytime soon, making the top portion of the tower vacant and available, paving the way for possible placement of DTV panel antennas there.
