This contribution presents spectrum occupancy measurements which have been performed during the 2006 Football World Cup in Germany, in the cities of Kaiserslautern and Dortmund. The measurements investigate the time-variation of powers in 2G bands (900 MHz and 1800 MHz), a spectrum bandwidth including 3G bands and an ISM band (2000- 2600 MHz), and a global band (400-2600 MHz), on the day prior to a match, the day of the match, and during the match. The first intention is to study changes in power levels and subsequently relate this to specific events, such as (i) the start of the match, (ii) half-time, and (Hi) the end of the match. A next intention is to investigate the autocorrelation structure of changes in power levels, and relate this to the ease with which dynamic spectrum allocation might be performed. The results that ensue are used to inspire a discussion as to how dynamic spectrum allocation and short-range localized solutions such as IEEE 802.11 basestations might be leveraged to bolster capacity at large-scale events.
