Can a station broadcast mobile DTV and not OTA ATSC?

Have you ever looked into the USRP project? There are already several people working on ATSC decoding with that platform and M/H is likely to be tackled soon, if not already.

Oh wow. No, I did not know about that project. That looks like WAY too much fun. I think my wife would kill me if I got involved. I'm going to have to resist buying the hardware, because once I did I think I would spend all my free time hacking on it. I would actually be more interested in writing ATSC transmit code, even if I couldn't create it in real time (perhaps I could create a huge encoded stream and then send it), although transmitting should require less CPU than receiving. I have always wanted to test how different tuners behave in the presence of a variety of bad data, and also test compliance with more obscure parts of the standard (e.g. directed channel changes).

Oh, I'd be very interested in this level of detail. I think there are hundreds of thousands of PCTV products out there that support ATSC; if some of them can be "upgraded" to receive ATSC M/H, it'd be worth paying for.
