Very wide odd signal

Post by fborcic » Tue Jan 14, 2020 1:41 pm

I'm completely new to this and can't seem to figure out what causes the reception in the attached screenshot, so I thought I'd ask here.

It's about 10 MHz wide, received in a residential building in Zagreb, Croatia with an RTL-SDR v3 dongle and the small dipole antenna that came with it. The signal fades when the antenna is detached, so I guess it's not an artifact of the dongle. The sharp signal drop is seen on both ends of the band.

Could it be radar?

Check your Lokal Gov. Information what the Band is use for.
It can be DVB-T(2).

Yep i'd say probably DVB-T/2, for HDTV.

Thanks, you're right. I didn't realize DVB-T took so much bandwidth.
