The second generation DVB standard for digital terrestrial broadcasting (DVB-T2) is already in regular operation in several countries around the world. The networks operated in these countries are primarily optimized for stationary reception. Consequently, all currently available commercial receivers have been optimized for the stationary use case. However, thanks to a wide range of parameter configurations, the DVB-T2 standard is also well-suited for mobile reception, which is currently evaluated in a field trial with DVB-T2 in the northern part of Germany. As no mobile measurement receivers are available, we developed the world's first software-based mobile DVB-T2 measurement receiver for evaluating the performance of DVB-T2 within this field trial. Besides the decoding of the Transport Stream, the receiver is also able to measure detailed transmission channel characteristics and link them to their geographical position using GPS data.
