This project report focused on the research and analysis carried out on UHF signal
coverage on channel-35 of Kwara-TV Broadcasting Station located in Apata-Yakuba, Kwara
State. The study brings out the theories involved in transmission and reception of UHF signal.
The scope of this project is limited to the ultra high frequency (UHF) band, within which Kwara
State Television (KWTV) Ilorin, provides their services in and around the state.
The reception network involves the actual coverage radii of the main transmitter
measured using the Field Strength Meter, while the transmission network is based on the
estimate on current technical data and using theoretical methods to calculate the distance. This
project also gives comprehensive detail on various variables, such as atmospheric moisture, solar
wind, physical obstructions, etc that affect the point to point transmission and reception of TV
signals, and at the same time may cause degradation of signal reception.
Lastly, this project looked into the major advantages and disadvantages of UHF transmission and
reception, the size of transmission antenna and customer’s reception antenna as related to the
size of the radio wave, various means of improving UHF signal coverage especially when a
distance greater than the line of sight is required and various country where UHF signal has
