It is expected that the upcoming DVB-NGH (Digital Video Broadcasting-Next Generation Handheld) shall be based on the existing DVB-T2 technology. Also DVB-NGH enabled Handheld receivers are going to work with the existing DVB infrastructure. In this paper, the authors model the link budget deficits of the Handheld DVB receivers as additional power losses for a typical fixed roof-top DVB-T2 receiver. Because of those additional losses Handhelds get a reduced coverage. The attrition in coverage is especially dramatic for the indoor Handheld receivers. They analyze coverage for two different models of the Population density, i.e. Clark's and Smeed's.
