    Abstract

    In this paper we present results of the new monitoring network for spectrum governance. The network is based on the RFeye system of CRFS where the data is collected employing mobile monitoring vehicles. The measurement data, obtained from a frequency sweep between 10 MHz and 6 GHz, is further analyzed. For this purpose a tool is made, tailored for the needs of the spectrum regulator. Initial results are presented based on the measurement data showing the spectrum occupancy of various Dutch operators in the GSM downlink bands for different geographical areas. In addition, the statistics are provided with respect to the in-band power variation.
