Impressive? We'll see. Perhaps... but just a nit...since when did the NE corridor not include Boston (as just one example)?

As a starting point, I did a bit of research yesterday into some basic OFDM design constraints. The best resource I found is a pdf White paper published by MediaFlo, the Qualcom subsidiary that is building out an OFDM-based mobile TV infrastructure in recovered 700Mhz spectrum.Here is the link:


The paper is highly informative, and includes several maps detailing how the network will be built in several areas of the country. One interesting take away is that it will take only 30 transmission sites to completely cover the NE corridor, and this includes both national channels and local channels in several markets. You can zoom in on the maps and see exactly how they plan to do it.
