Allowing a different modulation scheme besides those of NTSC or ATSC in a 6 MHz TV channel (that would have the same power spectral density and emissions mask imperatives as is currently required in a TV channel) would enable LPTV and TV Translators to do broadband. And would do so using existing infrastructure and existing licensed spectrum. No need for insentive auctions or repacking, and It would create large cover areas without large expense. This would be a great benefit to rural parts of the United States. And it would offer some much needed competition to a cellular industry that could use some.
