The DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcasting, Handheld) coverage area depends mainly on the area type, i.e. on the radio path attenuation, as well as on the transmitter power level, antenna height and radio parameters. The latter set has effect also on the audio/video capacity. In the detailed network planning, not only the coverage itself is important but the quality of service level should be dimensioned accordingly. This paper describes the SFN gain related items as a part of the detailed radio DVB-H network planning. The emphasis is put to the effect of DVB-H parameter settings on the error levels caused by the over-sized Single Frequency Network (SFN) area.
