Determination of Causes and Effect of Signal Interferences in Television Stations in Nigeria [ ]

This work is on determination of causes and effect of signal interferences in television stations in Nigeria. It aims at identifying the existence of interference between two nearby Television stations. It also identifies the level, the causes and the effects of such interference. To achieve this, experiments were carried out within the six geopolitical zones of the country. The experiments proved the existence of interference and the simulations carried out using existing ITU mathematical models gave the interference signal level for each station considered. The values obtained were simulated using Mat Lab and various graphs were plotted confirming the existence and level of interference.
