This letter investigates the location variability of the field strength for dimensioning broadcast networks targeting mobile reception. A statistical analysis of empirical data from three European cities is performed for services in UHF band, specifically in TV bands IV and V (470-860 MHz). This work demonstrates that currently used values based on ITU-R P.1546-1 are too pessimistic and lead to inefficient network dimensioning.
