Abstract: This paper examines certain challenges to implementation of Distributed Transmission Systems (DTSs), also known as Single-Frequency Networks (SFNs), presented by the regulations governing their design and licensing in the United States, exploring the issues they cause. It then considers alternative approaches to the specific portions of the regulations that create the difficulties. It explains the choice of one approach that has been proposed for adoption in a regulatory process to replace a portion of the current rule, and it discusses the impact that the proposed change will have on different types of television broadcast licensees.
