Panel 6 of TASO performed a monumental and very creditable task in organizing and accumulating data on the signal to interference ratios required for television service, as presented in its report. Because the Panel was uncertain as to the uses to which the F.C.C. might eventually put the data, the presentations were left in a relatively unfinished form. It is the purpose of this report to develop the data further into a form more useful for certain purposes and to develop the formulae for the application of these signal to interference ratios to the description of television service. As a by-product of this analysis it is hoped that the reader will have a better understanding of the basic concepts of quality and service. The report will be divided into two parts. In Part I, the TASO data will be reanalyzed and developed into the new form, and in Part II these results will be applied to the description of television service.
