Hi Sivasubramanian,

I worked with community terrestrial DTV in Argentina, and I see your
idea very interesting, as even with just one terrestrial DTV
transmitter, at least 8 channels can be broadcast using
multi-programming (of course in cable or satellite you can carry much
more channels).

Similarly to using cables, in a tower you can easily put a DTV
transmitter together with LTE or WiFi equipment for a hybrid
broadcast/broadband community network.

Best regards,
