This paper describes the results of two extensive measurement campaigns for evaluating the potential impact of scattered signals from wind turbines on terrestrial DTV reception quality in the UHF band. A detailed description of the different propagation channels encountered is provided. Furthermore, empirical threshold carrier-to-noise requirements for Quasi Error Free reception in the DVB-T system in the area of influence of a wind farm are presented, and the situations where a significant degradation can be found are identified and characterized.
